The long version: An eccentric lovesick European immigrant in the late 1910s used his knowledge of pulleys and levers to build an outdoor mansion-slash-Masonic temple out of limestone (but "Limestone Castle" doesn't sound as good).

One of a kind attraction with considerate and well-informed guides. How he carved and moved the blocks of limestone and coral remains a mystery.

Unless traveling with small children, the Coral Castle is worth 1-2 hours of your time. Tour guides describe the various features of the place. The symbolism and ingenuity of the structure makes for a fascinating hour or two. In addition, you’ll see African Redhead Agamas...More

True Floridian but never had visited the Coral Castle. Was surprised with a spontaneous visit DURING a day road trip home from a week cruise. Pricey for a walking 30-45 min tour. There’s no set time; it’s a continuous tour therefore, you join the tour...More

This creation by Edward Leedskallnan seems rather small, until you consider how it was built. Guides help bring it to life and turn the excavated bedrock into household artifacts. I saw it on television years ago, and the mysteries abound, mostly because the man with...More
