Casa Loma – The Majestic Castle

I stepped back in time as I explored the former estate of Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, a prominent Toronto financier, industrialist and military man. The tour of the castle was self-guided and truly enjoyed the enchanting Casa Loma Estate Gardens stroll through five acres of formal and informal specialty areas alive with color and fragrance.

Casa Loma Castle was the lifelong dream of Sir Henry Pellatt, a medieval castle on the crest of a hill overlooking Toronto. It begun in 1911 and took nearly 3 years to build which cost $3,500,000. Sir Henry Pellatt only enjoyed Casa Loma for less than ten years before financial misfortune forced him to abandon his dream castle. Today this unique piece of Canadian history is open daily as Canada’s top 10 tourist attraction in the country.

Go visit Canada’s Majestic Castle, Casa Loma and step back in time to a period of European elegance and splendour.

  2. I just realized I’ve been here. Many years ago, a cousin of mine who is a teacher asked me to help chaperone her class. I had forgotten the name of the caste, but as I was looking through your photos, thought it looked familiar. When I saw the stained glass dome ceiling…that confirmed it. Thanks for helping me remember.
