Coral Castle
28655 South Dixie Highway, Homestead
Miami , Florida 33033

View map

Visitors to Coral Castle some 60 years ago were greeted enthusiastically by a man weighing a mere 100 pounds and standing just over 5 feet tall asking for 10 cents admission to his fantasy world carved out of stone. It was obvious Ed Leedskalnin took pride in his work. Since no one ever witnessed Ed's labor in building his rock gate park, it was sometimes said he had supernatural powers. Ed would only say that he knew secrets used to build the ancient pyramids. Tours of Coral Castle include a 30-minute audio tour in English, Spanish, French or German detailing what millions saw on national television shows and how rock star Billy Idol wrote "Sweet Sixteen" about Ed's lost love. The Coral Castle remains a mystery to those who explore.
