Perched atop a hill at Spadina Road south of St. Clair, Casa Loma draws thousands of visitors each year. Casa Loma was built by Canadian financier Sir Henry Pellatt between 1911 and 1914, to fulfil his childhood wish for a castle.

It may appear anachronistic now, but it hasn't lost its majestic charm, or the secret passageways, towers and (empty) swimming pool that can be explored.

Casa Loma is owned by the City of Toronto and operated by the Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma, which operates it as a tourist attraction, and the tourists come at a rate of about 400,000 a year.
