Taking Flight…

Picture of the Week #93

This castle located in the “most diverse city in the world” is truly a hidden gem. At one time, it was also the largest private residence in this country. Can you guess where this is?

We visited Casa Loma during the “Doors Open Toronto” weekend. On this weekend, buildings of architectural, historical and cultural significance keep their doors open to the public.

Casa Loma, which means “Hill House” in Spanish, was originally the residence of a wealthy financier, Sir Henry Mill Pellatt. It was constructed in the early 20th century. However, due to the start of World War I, construction was never completed.

Today, Casa Loma is a museum and a unique landmark of Toronto (Canada) – there is no other building like this in the city. The building has secret passages and a 800 ft. underground tunnel that connects the Stables to the castle.

Interestingly, the building is more impressive from the outside than inside!

Seen above are the Stables, which are reached through a gravel courtyard.

If you are in Toronto, or are planning a visit here, don’t forget to include this gem in your itinerary!
