Casa Loma - Toronto’s unique architectural landmark

Baku, October 6, AZERTAC

Built in a striking Gothic Revival style, Casa Loma is among Toronto’s most striking and unique architectural landmarks.

It was initially built in 1911 as a private residence - the largest in Canada at the time - for financier Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, Casa Loma (1 Austin Terrace) is now a historical museum, as well as a popular tourist spot and filming spot for movies and television.

Visitors can explore the many impressive rooms of Casa Loma at their own pace. Walk through the great hall, or peruse any of the 10,000 books in the library on the main floor, or look at the elegant suites on the second floor. Climb up to the many narrow staircases to the top of the gothic towers (the entrances of which are located on the third floor) and marvel at the majestic views of the Toronto skyline.

Stroll around Casa Loma’s expansive grounds, covering five acres of borders, resplendent walled gardens and other botanical marvels. Visitors with green thumbs would enjoy observing the seasonal garden flora, as well as Casa Loma’s potting shed, where the estate’s collection of rare orchids and chrysanthemums are kept in the winter.
