Activity Overview

Coral Castle is a world-famous structure made out of limestone and sits in Homestead, Florida. The castle is a unique and extraordinary structure as it was created by just one man, a Latvian immigrant named Edward Leedskalnin who worked on the structure for nearly three decades. The castle was created out of strong devotion, commitment and patience in an agony to prove his abilities to the world. Since its opening in 1923, the construction of the castle has baffled scientists and engineers. The castle is open to public tours all through the week.
