This charming, Californian small town confidently holds up against its giant neighbours, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Oakland. 

Cosmopolitan and rich in history, given its American-Indian ancestors, Redwood City, was one of the cities which stood as testimony to the American prosperity of the two previous centuries. Although its origins date back to 1776, its history was created gradually by man and opportunity.
Redwood City has always welcomed entrepreneurs and provided an opportunity for those who make business a genuine way of living. 
The town is also famous for being the homeplace of Century Redwood City 20, a cinema-theater which presents numerous art and cinema exhibitions. With its typically American facade, which can be seen upon entering the town, this picture temple in Redwood City is not to be missed.
Another symbol of the city, the Pulgas Water Temple, a white stone building which serves as a pavilion. Initially designed to celebrate completion of the Hetch Hetchy water system which supplied drinkable water to San Francisco and surrounding areas. Its spherical shape and columns are reminiscent of the Greek architectural style.
