Coral Castle - Odd Rock Garden in Florida

Homestead, FL, United States
14 Kudos
The term "Coral Castle", to start with, is a misnomer as the rock constructions off Highway 1 in South Florida were never meant to be or to resemble a castle. Instead they are a series of carved rocks prepared by the eccentric but expert mason Ed Leedskalnin, a Latvian immigrant who stood all of 5 feet tall, and evidently working alone managed to build structures weighing many tons, moving them into position with his knowledge of masonry and engineering. There are mysteries about the Egyptian pyramids and alien help, but even the whimsical tour guides tend to discount those. It's worth a short stop if passing through, just to see an American oddity.
