Coral Castle

Moon Fountain

Florida Table

The Coral Castle was built by Latvian immigrant Edward Leedskalnin in Homestead, Florida. Leedskalnin claimed to had known "the secrets of the pyramids" and was therefore able to lift several tons of limestone made from coral using some form of magnetic propulsion. He built the castle as a monument to his lost love, his 16-year-old fiancee Agnes Scuffs in Latvia who left him just days before the wedding. He worked in secret and devoted his life to the project from 1920 to his death in 1951.
