Owner description: 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.

Did a self-guided tour. Wish we had time to grab a recording device to hear the stories of Toronto's past. Listened to high school students from Antioch Illinois perform a brief concert and the music and sound echoing through the castle was nothing shy of beautiful. A not-to-be missed piece of Toronto's history.

One of the beautiful landmarks in the Toronto area that actually has some really neat history. The architecture of this place is gorgeous. Watch out for times you are touring, school groups etc. They have some fun attractions in different times of the year (Halloween, Christmas) that are a must see.

I went to Casa Loma whilst visiting family living in Canada and was not disappointed. We spent 4 hours there (it’s a good place to visit in poor weeather). I learned a not about Toronto and some of its inhabitants.

Casa Loma is a place that you need to visit. It takes you back to time and you are amazed looking at all these rooms. Beautiful place. Go to the top of the tower and enjoyed the view . Great for taking some pictures of Toronto City,

I decided to visit Casa Loma after seeing it in a few different films, and I'm really glad I did! The castle itself is beautiful from the outside, but once inside you can be amazed by the grand interior, or walk through the gardens with a nice view over the city.
