About Coral Castle, Miami
The Castle is one of the most curious things in the world. Latvian American Edward Leedskalnin, on being dumped by his fiancee, decided to focus his efforts in building this amazing piece of modern art. Over a period of twenty eight years, he hewed out 1100 tonnes of stones in the form of walls, furniture, the date and the tower. The mind-boggler is that no one knows how he did it. Secretive about his methods, he used no standard machinery that we know of, yet his carvings are incredibly precise. He used no mortar to stack his creations, yet no light passes through the gap between them. Most of the stones he used weigh 15 tonnes or more. How in the world did he move them? Constructs of note include an accurate sundial, a telescope, a barbeque, a well, a fountain and an immense eight foot tall, 8 tonne gate, so precisely balanced on ball bearings that it swung at a child’s touch. When asked how he did it, Ed replied that he “truly understood the laws of leverage” and that he’d discovered the secret of the pyramids. Coral Castle is one of the attractions in 4 Days Itinerary Miami. Must visit this awesome attraction.

Coral Castle, Miami Reviews - Write a Review
Very Interesting! The story behind this place is amazing and the tour guide that we had was extremely knowledgeable. Great way to spend an hour or so. I have never seen anything quite like this and it is definitely worth the stop. The best part...it’s dog friendly! Highly recommend!
We are world travelers. This is one of the most fascinating places we have ever visited. The guides were informed and friendly. They were able to answer all questions. The tours loop, so you can join a tour immediately upon arriving -- no waiting. Suggest you watch utube videos before going. This place is filled with mysteries. Modern scientists and engineers cannot explain how this place of wonder could possibly be built, although the place is less than a century old! This place is as mysterious and amazing as the pyramids built around the world in ancient times.
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 sorry than twilight. 10/10 would recommend.
Interesting place of the life of a strange man. But, at the same time a very innovative engineering designer. I thought $15.00 is excessive when a reasonable price of maybe $3.00 at most is what it is worth. My friend who is much more appreciative of Engineering Skills liked the place a lot more.
Really worth the visit. Tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and articulate! Very interesting place but more interesting is the person who lived there!
