Santa Barbara is a city in Southern California.


According to Apollo, Santa Barbara resembled the Roman resort town of Baiae. The curve of the coastline was almost the same, as well as the golden beaches. The hills dotted with upscale stucco and red-tiled homes and the pleasure craft moored in the harbor. The locals even had the same sunbaked, pleasantly dazed expressions, as if they were biding their time between morning surf sessions and afternoon golf. The biggest difference was that Mount Vesuvius did not rise in the distance.

The Trials of Apollo

The Burning Maze

When searching for Caligula’s headquarters, Apollo, Meg McCaffrey, Piper McLean and Jason Grace go to Santa Barbara to look for it. They find nothing but learn later that day that his headquarters are really a serie of super Yachts.
