Take a tour of this Elizabethan style mansion that was built by Sir Henry Pellat. Sir Henry built Casa Loma in 1914 for $5 million. He imported marble, glass, and paneling from Europe, teak from Asia, and oak and walnut from prime areas of North America. Sir Henry even imported Scottish stonemasons to construct the walls surrounding the six-acre site. Complete with Rhineland turrets, secret passages, and an 800-foot underground tunnel, Casa Loma is a favorite attraction for people of all ages.
