Create an itinerary including Coral Castle
Coral Castle is an oolite limestone structure created by the Latvian-American eccentric Edward Leedskalnin (1887–1951). It is located in unincorporated territory of Miami-Dade County, Florida, between the cities of Homestead and Leisure City. The structure comprises numerous large stones, mostly limestone formed from coral, each weighing several tons. It is currently a privately operated tourist attraction. Coral Castle is noted for legends surrounding its creation that claim it was built single-handedly by Leedskalnin using reverse magnetism or supernatural abilities to move and carve numerous stones, each weighing many tons.

  • This is one of the most magical places in south Florida. The history behind and the mistery hidden in is just mind blowing, and the castle itself, every piece every chair, every table that Edward made irradiates the love he felt for Agnes. This is definitely a place you can't miss while visiting south Florida. And if you are a fan of conspiracy theories, you'll love it even more! The guides are also awesome and passionate when t long the story. I used to visit when I was a kid, and today I brought my own kids and they absolutely loved it!
  • 11/17/17 Bucket list adventure! Drove an hour from ft Lauderdale, caught 2.5 tour guides, and stayed for 3 hours. How anyone would rate this less than 5 stars is beyond me. The tour guides did a phenomenal job! Each with their own personality. DEF Worth the price of admission. I wasn't able to buy any souvenirs this time, But I do plan on going back. Great first date spot. Great relaxation area. Great views from anywhere you stood. Great information. Great history. Great atmosphere. Great people. Engineering marvel. Better love story than twilight. 10/10 would recommend.
