Description:

Top ranked by TripAdvisor / Yelp! Ed Leedskalnin secretly built Coral Castle at night; excavating, carving, and moving over 1,100 Tons of coral rock. Since 1923 Scientists, Engineers, and Scholars continue to be mystified. The methods Ed used to create this architectural feat remain unanswered to this day. See a hand-carved 9-ton gate: perfectly balanced, a Polaris telescope, the world's only Sundial that provides you with the time of day, month of the year and four seasons. Referred to as a Modern Megalith, Coral Castle is compared to the ancient megalith's of the Egyptian pyramids, Stonehenge, and is considered by many to be one of the Wonders of the World. Experience the Coral Castle with our tours guides. The guides will share the "Love Story", the History, the Science, and experience how some of Ed's items work; even after 98 years! Seen on the History Channel, Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, Ancient Aliens, Univision, BBC, and much more! Billy Idol wrote his famous song & continues to sing "Sweet Sixteen" in concert today. There is a fantastic short movie about the greatest mysteries of Coral Castle and it's creator and builder; Edward Leedskalnin. Enjoy the delicious delights at the Coral Castle Café and Gift Shop.
