Sights

Like Napier, Hastings was devastated by the 1931 earthquake and also boasts some fine art-deco and Spanish Mission buildings, built in the aftermath. Main-street highlights include the Westerman's Building, arguably the bay's best example of the Spanish Mission style, although there are myriad architectural gems here. The i-SITE stocks the Art Deco Hastings brochure ($1), detailing two self-guided walks.
