Visit: Coral Castle, 28655 S Dixie Hwy, Homestead, FL 33033-1214
A monument dedicated to heartbreak and lost love, Coral Castle is one of the world’s most remarkable accomplishments. During their visit, guests are invited to move on their own through the castle and can expect to see walls consisting of 8-foot-high pieces of stone; an accurate sundial; a Polaris telescope; an obelisk; a barbecue; a water well; a fountain; celestial stars and planets; and numerous pieces of furniture. The furniture pieces include a heart-shaped table, a table in the shape of Florida, twenty-five rocking chairs, chairs resembling crescent moons, a bathtub, beds and a throne. A typical visit takes about 1 to 2 hours.
To this day, no one knows how Edward Leedskalnin created the Coral Castle. Built under the cover of night and in secret, at a time when there were no modern construction conveniences, Ed would only say that he knew "the secret of the pyramids."
