Casa Loma Towers


Casa Loma is a 98 room house built in the early 1900s and is now owned by the City of Toronto which operates it as tourist attraction. Next to the CN Tower it is probably our most famous attraction and it is also rented out for weddings, movie sets, and other events . Built on a steep hillside, its towers are visible from all over mid-town but the hill is covered in trees so getting an unobstructed shot is difficult. I have tried many times and this time attempted a side shot before all the leaves come out!

This building is fantastic, every time I see towers I think about castles... ;-)

Would you believe I have NEVER been there? I've only seen it from the outside. Yep, shame on me.

EG - I can see it from my place but I haven't been inside either! I have done the tour of the grounds when the lillies are in bloom. I also haven't been up the CN Tower!

Now that takes me back! Haven't seen Casa Loma since I was a kid. We lived in Kingston, and every now and then did the TO tour.

I'd pay for a ticket for a tour of that place! Cool!

I love Casa Loma.....I go every Christmas. I use to go when I was small and then with my daughter. The place is just amazing, so beautiful inside. I've been to some weddings there also. Thanks for the photo.

Good grief, how many bits can you stick on a house?!

It looks like Disneyworld! Rather improbable. But not unattractive in its way.
