Discover Coral Castle

To this day, Coral Castle’s origins remain a mystery. We know from 1923-1951, Edward Leedskalnin carved 1,000 tons of coral rock. We know he designed an elaborate rock garden. What we don’t know is how he did it by himself.

A true eccentric, Leedskalnin attributed this feat because he “knew the secrets used to build the pyramids.” Some have said he had supernatural powers. Perhaps we’ll never know how he did this single-handedly. But the Castle’s legacy endures today.

Built as an everlasting monument to his lover that canceled their wedding the day before the ceremony, there’s something quite romantic about the gardens. Bougainvillea trees shade the gigantic rock walls.

Among the garden’s features is a 9-ton gate that opens with the touch of a finger, a Polaris telescope, and functional rocking chairs. All of them are made completely of coral stone.

When you walk through this castle in Florida, you’ll be in awe of the structure. While scientists debate how Leedskalnin built this castle, it stands as a testament to the power of love.
