LA or Europe?

If it weren't for the oh-so-SoCal-palm trees, this scene could be straight out of a European city. I don't exactly know where since I've never crossed the pond, but I do hope to find out soon.

In the meantime, views from the Westin Pasadena pool deck will have to do! Anyone have an idea of what type of architecture the pictured city hall was modeled after?

Have a happy weekend!
