Coral Castle - Witness the magic

By Erin King Subscribe to RSS | January 29th 2012 | Views:

Homestead, Florida and its bizarre natural stone structure was built by Edward Leedskalnin, who was considered to be an eccentric. No one will ever know how or even why it was built. Each of the huge coral stones weigh much more than the average human could move by themselves, which is just one of many reasons the Coral Castle to this day remains an extraordinary mystery. Besides this magical place you'll find that Homestead is close to other tourist attractions like Biscayne National Park, the Everglade Alligator Farm and a multitude of cheap hotels in Florida that are close to all these one of a kind attractions.

The very private and distrustful Leedskalnin never permitted anyone to observe the construction of his Coral Castle. He worked on it by lantern light after dark and gossiping neighbors claimed he actually levitated massive stone, many weighing over 30 tons; twice as heavy as the biggest blocks used to build Giza. Some even said that he was seen singing to the massive stones and moving them about like hot air balloons and gracefully setting each heavy stone in its place. You can imagine this caused quite a stir in the neighborhood.

Rumor has it that Leedskalnin professed to have discovered the secret building techniques of the ancient architects in Asia, Egypt, Peru and the Yucatan, using only medieval tools that somehow made it possible to elevate and arrange 30 ton blocks of stone.

In 1936 Leedskalnin moved Coral Castle to Homestead from Florida City, all by himself. It is said that he made the move because he felt he had made a mathematical miscalculation regarding its position and couldn't harness adequate magnetic energy on the first site to finishing completing the Castle. This theory believes he was finally able to decode the Earth’s magnetic powers, and as a result was in fact capable of magnetizing the heavy stone. This supposedly enabled him, again by himself, to move tons of heavy stone using only a simple tripod along with pulleys. Leedskalnin also claimed to see droplets of light which he theorized to be the presence of Mother Nature’s life force and magnetism, referred to day as "chi".

No one knows for sure what happened here and how Leedskalnin managed to build this magical structure by himself, but he did and travelers from all over the world flock to view his awe inspiring accomplishment. Whether he had been an intuitive with magical capabilities, a prodigy of the time, or had in fact unlocked some important mystical power to harness the magnetic forces of the earth, the Coral Castle is still considered one of the many unique wonders of the world.

Even if you're on a budget, the cheap hotels in Miami, Florida will make it affordable for you to enjoy the magic of the Coral Castle in Homestead and all the other unique tourist attractions nearby.
