Casa Loma
Canada, Ontario

Casa Loma is a unique legacy of Sir Henry Mil Pellat, a well-known Canadian financier, industrialist and officer of the early twentieth century. Sir Henry, as a true romantic, always had a dream - to have his own castle. When funds appeared for its implementation, he turned for help to the architect E.J. Lennox. Build this "medieval" building was decided in Toronto. The castle gained architectural features from a wide variety of styles: Gothic, Romanesque and Norman.
With its technical equipment, Casa Loma surpassed all the facilities of that time: electricity was supplied to it, there was a central dust-collecting system and its own telephone station with 59 phones. It was said at the time that more calls were made from Casa Loma per day than in the rest of Toronto. In addition, the stoves in the kitchen were so large that they could cook the bull without cutting.
Today, Casa Loma is open for excursions. On the ground floor there are rooms for celebrations, and in the upper floor there are exhibits dedicated to both the life of Henry Pellatus and his wife, and the history of Toronto as a whole.
