Artist's Description

This photo is taken from the gardens of Casa Loma (House on the Hill). Now owned by the city of Toronto, it is a beautiful tourist attraction. It is considered to be Canada’s foremost castle, and you can explore the estate. Complete with decorated suites, secret passages, an 800-foot tunnel, towers, stables, and beautiful 5-acre estate gardens.
In 1911, Sir Henry Pellatt drew up plans to build this castle with E. J. Lennox, a Canadian architect. The location chosen had been given a name by its previous owner: “house on the hill” or Casa Loma.
In less than 10 years, Sir Henry due to many financial factors, was forced to auction off this wonderful creation, and most of his prized possessions, before it was fully completed. In 1925 William Sparling proposed to turn Casa Loma into a luxury hotel, but it never came to be. Finally in 1937 Casa Loma opened to the public after extensive refurbishment by The Kiwanis Club as a tourist attraction.
This site is a lovely place for wedding photos, formal events, and there have even been several movies filmed in parts of the castle.
