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 a Edwardian castle on the top of a hill overlooking Toronto. It took 300 men nearly three years to complete and cost $3,500,000 at the time to realize Sir Henry Pellatt’s vision.
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.
