Napier, New Zealand is an incredibly visual city. Known as the “Art Deco Capital of the World,” this seaside town is a haven for art and architecture lovers.
Napier has one of the highest concentrations of Art Deco and Spanish Mission style buildings in the entire world. Combine that with local art, city-wide murals, outdoor sculptures at every turn, and beautifully-designed gardens and outdoor spaces, and it’s easy to see why I fell in love with the city.
Located on the Eastern coast of New Zealand’s North Island, most people don’t think of Napier when creating their travel itinerary, but if you’re into art, you have to make a stop here.
I wrote a full guide to Napier here, and I wrote specifically about the architecture here, but that just wasn’t enough. I still have so many photos I want to share to show you how cool this town is. The colors, the gardens, the art, the buildings, and every little detail made me get all heart eyes emoji.
Below are some of my favorite photos from Napier, and you can find even more in my Steller Story.
