510. Casa Loma

Casa Loma Toronto
When Anouk came to visit, I suggested several places for her to visit but didn't include Casa Loma at first. As she is from Luxembourg, I didn't think she'd enjoy it as much since she lives in and around towns with much more impressive and grander castles. Casa Loma is the only castle in Toronto. It was the former home of businessman Sir Henry Pellatt and Lady Mary Pellatt. The castle was constructed in 1914.

We ended up going on her last day here. I wanted to visit as well since I haven't been there in years. I actually don't remember the last time I visited - it must have been more than 10 years ago. It's nice showing visitors around my city. Makes me feel like a tourist as well and appreciate my city more! We had a wonderful time here and I'm so glad we went. By the way, here is Anouk's post from the day which I suggest checking out..her photos are very beautiful!

Casa Loma guest room
One of the guest rooms, furnished in Asian style decor. I was thinking maybe they had different themes for each guest room based on who was staying there.

I liked the Asian style room as well as this one - the Windsor Room. This one was created for the Royal Family. Henry Pellatt had hopes they would one day visit and stay here.

Then we went to the very top tower of the castle to take in a magnificent view. There was a line up to go up and the only way up (and down) was a narrow spiral staircase.

Then we had a lunch break. I don't remember there being a restaurant here last time I visited...

After that, we took a quick walk around to explore the gardens. We were so lucky with the weather that day. I remember the forecast called for thunderstorms but luckily it was wrong and we had beautiful sunny weather (although it was ridiculously hot)

Hermes! I used to be quite interested in Greek mythology. Hermes was one of my favourites.

Lastly, we visited the garage and stables where we had to walk in a creepy underground tunnel to get to.
