Coral Castle in Homestead

Coral Castle in Homestead

We stopped in Miami at Miami Everglades Campground. Then went site seeing at Coral Castle. This is a must see. This guy built this after being jilted by his fiancé. It took 28 years and unsurpassed engineering. He died in the 1950’s of a stroke but was diagnosed with a severe lung disease and built this open garden type outdoor roofless castle to live in and stay in the sun to get vitamin D for healing. It worked when he died he was free of lung disease. It is equipped with no electricity and has everything included, a sundial, a dining set with a table shaped like the state of Florida. Ingenious design. You have to check it out.
