I really enjoy to visit Casa Loma. Visiting  Casa Loma,  as I  traveled step back in time, feel the way Sir Henry Pellatt and his family used to live in such a luxurious and modern house in that era. Thank you so much to Michael, who guide and take me to visit this Castle.

Most beautiful picture in this article is photograph by Michael Gunawan, on February 2011 and May 2011.

I wrote about Casa Loma in 4 parts:
      • 1st part, Main Entrance, Main floor,
      • 2nd part, The Second Floor,
      • 3rd part, The Third Floor, Lower Level, and The Stables
      • 4th part, Garden and it’s beautiful flowers
