General Information

The mansion on the hill, Casa Loma is a mansion and garden that is situated in Midtown Toronto, Canada. The mansion which is considered to be a landmark in Toronto was built from 1911 to 1914 as a residence for financier Sir Henry Pallet, designed by architect E.J Lennox. It was built to a Gothic Revival style and is impressive in its detailing. The mansion was seized for unpaid taxes in 1924 and was left unused for a number of years but its stables were used during World War Two as a sonar research and production centre. At that point, the building was owned by Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma who used the building as a tourist attraction up until around 2011. Today, the mansion is owned by Liberty Entertainment Group and the building is still a tourist attraction and event venue with many people marrying at the splendid mansion.

Casa Loma

Rated:

Lovely historical site in Toronto. Parking is available at $15, which is a bit of a downer. Multiple restaurants open with reservations required. Guided tours are available and the guides are friendly and knowledgeable. Whole thing seemed very covid secure with use of masks and sanitiser.

This is an impressive build. Such a cool style. The admission price is a bit over what i think it's worth.
