Casa Loma, Spanish for ‘house on the hill’, was built between 1911 and 1914 for Canadian financier and industrialist, Sir Henry Pellatt and his family.
Inspired by the elegance and splendor of European design, the castle boasts exquisitely decorated suites, secret passages, an 800-foot tunnel, towers, stables, and a beautiful five-acre garden estate. Wander through Peacock Alley, a reproduction of its namesake at Windsor Castle, or explore the Billiard Room where Pallett and the castle’s architect, E.J. Lennox recorded a long-running game of billiards. A Major General in Canada’s second oldest regiment, the Queen’s Own Rifles, Sir Henry Pellatt had a love of fine art and architecture, interests that are reflected throughout the castle.
