CASA LOMA, 1 AUSTIN TERRACE, IS BOTH A MUSEUM & LANDMARK OVERLOOKING DOWNTOWN

CASALOMA2Casa Loma is TORONTO’s castle, a museum, landmark and special events venue, open to the public year ‘round.

CASALOMA3    Built in 1911-14, by Canadian financier Sir Henry Mill Pellat, the house and stables were designed by E. J. Lennox, architect of Old City Hall and numerous other important buildings.  The castle has a fine view of the city centre.
