Have you heard of Casa Loma? Casa Loma (House on the Hill) is the former home of Canadian financier Sir Henry Pellatt. The Edwardian-era castle has an 800-foot tunnel, towers, secret passages, decorated suites, stables and 5-acre estate gardens inspired from Sir Pellatt’s travels in Europe and his love for fine art and architecture. Unfortunately, Sir Pellatt lost his fortune after World War I and was forced to give up his castle to pay off his debts.

The castle’s Peacock Alley is modeled after a passageway in Windsor Castle and the study with mahogany panels has a concealed secret door on either side of the fireplace. The Great Hall which is the main room of the castle has a 60-foot high ceiling and sculpted pillars. Take the spiral stairs to the top and take in the views of the surrounding area including the skyline of Toronto.

On the lower level is the 800-foot tunnel to the stables. Tour the stables and the old vintage cars. Check out the wine cellars that once held almost 2,000 bottles of wine and champagne. And The Estate Gardens of Casa Loma is worth a visit from May through October.

The entrance fee to Casa Loma is included if you purchase the Toronto City Pass. Casa Loma is open daily from 9:30 am to 5 pm. The last entry is at 4:35 pm. It is located on 1 Austin Terrace, Toronto, Ontario M5R 1X8 (corner of Spadina Road and Davenport Road).
