Canada's majestic castle and Toronto’s premier historic attraction.
In 1911, Sir Henry Pellatt engaged noted architect
E.J. Lennox to help him realize a lifelong dream,the
creation of an Edwardian castle on the top of a hill
overlooking Toronto. It took 300 men nearly three
years to complete the nearly to 200,000 square foot
castle at a cost $3,500,000 (at the time). Situated on
5 acres, Casa Loma was the largest private residence in
Canada. Sir Henry Pellatt with his wife Lady Mary enjoyed
Casa Loma for less than ten years before financial
misfortune forced him to abandon his home.
The tour of the castle is self-guided. Visitors can
experience the castle at their leisure with the aid of
multimedia audio guides.
