Description

Join us on Obscura Day for an exploration of the extraordinary architecture of the Coral Castle.


Turning a broken heart into a miraculous work of art,  Ed Leedskalnin built the marvelous Coral Castle in honor of the woman who left him the day before their wedding. Not only amazing to behold, because of its strange beauty, the Castle includes some pretty serious feats of engineering. Somehow Ed, at 100 lbs and just over 5 feet tallmanaged to wrangle towering chunks of Oolitic Limestone (fossilized coral) over 25 feet tall and weighing over 30 tons into place. When pressed, Ed would only say that he knew the secrets used to build the ancient Egyptian pyramids.


Inspired by its beauty and sad love story, Billy Idol was moved to his hit song, "Sweet Sixteen" about Ed and his lost love.


Join us for a private tour at 2pm.
