Both the oldest and largest city in the county, San Rafael is the heart and center of Marin, filled with excitement, opportunity, and cultural significance throughout the community. Historic roots run deep in San Rafael, with the city existing prior to California’s founding as the 20th Spanish mission in the Mexican province of Alta California. More recently, architectural mastermind Frank Lloyd Wright left an everlasting impression on the city with his universally acclaimed design of the Marin County Civic Center. Downtown, San Rafael City Plaza is the community gathering place playing host to weekend events, the farmers market on Thursday, and outdoor concerts during the summer. Nearby, the Rafael Film Center is known as the World Famous Mill Valley Film Festival and several other art festivals and activities throughout the year. Every lifestyle is available in San Rafael, with each neighborhood providing its own unique experience to residents. Whether you choose to live in one of the custom homes in Lucas Valley, a highly-desirable midcentury designed by world-renown architect Joseph Eichler in Terra Linda, or a momentous victorian in the historic area near Dominican College, San Rafael provides the best in community and in-home luxury living.
