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.

I had a surprisingly enjoyable visit. The guided tour took about 75 mins and was a great insight into a clever self taught guy who worked very hard and was very frugal. To me this place is a unique scientific and business education.
I love this place! I went at 2 yrs old and finally came back at 30 and its still awesome! I think the guy who made is was either a genius or insane or both but its a total mystery how he built all those statues and stone walls by himself! Must see attraction atleast once in your life!
This place is amazing. The tour guide was great, he was very informative and funny. This really shows what people can do when they use their mind. Ed was a from a stone mason family and what he built cannot be accomplished even with modern engineering. It's only $15 per adult and children under 6 are free so it's inexpensive.
I visited this place after seeing all the other most important sights in Miami so I would recommend the others to do the same. If you are in the area for longer period, it's a nice visit around 30 min up to an hour. If you are an engineer then one should visit it to see what can be done by human hands with no proper building tools. I didn't mind the cost as everything already costs up to 20 dollars in Miami. Basically you will be paying for the tour guide and I think it is fare enought as otherwise you wouldn't understand most of the things he created and how he created them. It's a masterpiece for sure and should be kept and shown for the public. Amazing things are done by some people in the world even it's in a small area. I enjoyed it!
Great tour guide. Simply amazing what one man accomplished. We spent about 2 hours looking around and would have spent a little long if it hadn't started raining. Gift shop was ridiculously overpriced, but that was not a big deal because we just avoid buying anything.
