I was born Jan 1, 1932 and we lived in Homestead. Coral Castle was then South of Homestead at Florida City. The family would go often as it only costs 5 cents. I use to talk to Ed. I remember him coming up steps from his living space in a cellar He would show me around. I remember phoning Mr. Bullard when he was writing his book but did not receive a reply. In the 80's a man from Homestead was shopping in our drugstore & I asked him if he had seen & he replied "I moved it up Chrome Avenue on my flat bed trucks" I went to see the new location after the hurricane< Andrew. As a child I could move the entry door easily. TILL the NEXT TIME John

Members of my family and I visited the Coral Castle for the first time this past Friday. Not really knowing what to expect, we were blown away with what we learned and saw. 'Amazing' and 'unbelievable' don't even begin to describe the experience. Our visit was the talk of the weekend. We wonder, after the pain of heartbreak Ed endured, did he live everyday as a fantasy of what might have been? Truly an incredible site! We will be back!

Whoever told you that Ed had help or let people know how he built coral castle, knows nothing about the history of Coral Castle or the secrets that Ed leaves clues for throughout his masterpiece. Ed worked alone. Yes, there is equipment, but nobody else knows how to use it. Ed was a genius, but brawn??? Come on, he was 5 feet tall and weighed 100 pounds, so you really don't know what you are talking about. It's unfortunate that people who don't know the true history of Coral Castle may read uneducated comments and never realize how amazing Ed's work is.

I visited Rock Gate Coral Castle way back in the 1980s, when I had no idea who Ed Leedskalnin was or that he had built an amazing structure using techniques of the ancients. AND he was a Latvian-American like me. However, after doing research I discovered that Leedskalnin was not born in Riga (the capital city of Latvia); Leedskalnin was born 186 kilometers (115.58 miles) away in Stameriena parish. There are other facts that don't sound correct - like Scuffs is not a Latvian name... where did this information come from? What about all the tunnels and rooms under the castle... explored yet?

coral castle is a great piece of art work ...in its class... best in the USA...however... to say no one ever saw him building his creation is not true...and to indicate that he used some mystical power is not true... at one time there was a number of ...hoist, wenches, tripods and other machines...on the premises... that he used to construct his coral castle..LETS GIVE THIS MAN CREDIT FOR HIS BRAINS AND BRAWN AND CREATIVITY...

Hi! I`m from Latvia. It`s amazing how he was building the Coral Castle. He left Latvia, because there was 1 World War.

Is there any information about why he left Latvia, how he left Europe and any dates for those events?

Was he a member of any church groups or religion?

Did he adhere to any special diet ... like, vegetarian?

Thanks in advance...Steve

We visited Coral Castle 12-11-12 with some friends that were visiting us. I have visited before, but it was the first time for the 3 handy men I was with. I had never taken the tour, and this time we did. Our guide, Zulay, was great! She took time with us to tell us about different "experiments" we could try, and our minds were blown! With carpentry in my guest's past, they were mesmerized by all the different things at Coral Castle. I learned so much from the tour that I never knew about from previous visits. We had a great time, took some fun and memorable photos, and had lots to talk about during dinner tonight. Thank you for a wonderful tour Zulay! Your enthusiasm was contagious, And your tour was informative, and fun! We will return with other visiting guests in the future!
