Coral Castle - Review

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

  • The ticket price is 18 per person include tour. The staff was nice and friendly. The coral architecture was outstanding. However, it seems very small. I recommend that they may adjust ticket price to with and without tour. It would be better for second visiting customer.

  • We had a great time at the Coral Castle! It's not a very large site - maybe about an acre if that. It's also right in the middle of town which is weird (we expected it to be out away from the city). If you're not paying close attention, you may drive right by it the first time - it's not easy to spot. The tour guides were very friendly and knowledgeable and you can pick up a tour right in the middle if you'd like. We wandered about a bit looking at everything and marveling at Ed's living quarters and equipment before we decided to join a tour. Take at least 3 hours to visit so you can wander, take photos and take the tour. The ONLY thing that I was disappointed in was the gift shop. So many of my friends wanted "something" from here but the selection is very limited - not many T-shirts, hats, postcards - things like that. I would have LOVED to get a book on the history of the place with photos, etc, but I didn't see anything like that at all. Now they DO have Ed's own books there that they sell. He wrote 4 books (I believe) and those are sold at the gift shop. Overall, it was an amazing visit and we plan on returning in the future!

  • I have been wanting to come to coral castle for over 5 years now. Reading about and anticipating when I would go. I was not disappointed . Tour guides and staff are amazing. The gift shop is really cool. Definitely come here when you are in the area.

  • The place isn't as large as I would call a castle, but it is absolutely amazing and beautiful. The tour guides kept telling the legendary story of the original builder's life, despite being the exactly same version found on Wikipedia, it was still quite fascinating. Conveniently located near Homestead, I'd recommend anyone to pay a visit.

  • It's certainly unusual, worth stopping by simply for the wonder of it even though there's no real historical significance or purpose to it. (If you like Ripley's, this is essentially one giant "believe it or not" exhibit.) Glad I did it, but not on my "need to visit again every time I'm in the area" list. The continuous live guided tours are included with admission and depart every 15 minutes or so. You can join/leave at any point and loop around to anything you missed. I strongly recommend following the guide to get the most out of it; otherwise you'll just be wandering around looking at giant stuff made out of coral. Explanations on signage and your leaflet are minimal. You can wander after the tour all you like to examine items more closely or get particular photos. The experience is entirely outdoors and mostly uncovered, so plan your apparel and weather gear accordingly.
