Travel Pins: Casa Loma

Travel Pins this week shares thoughts on Casa Loma 

As I toured this opulent $3.5M (1920s dollars), 98-room château located in the heart of Toronto and once owned by Sir Henry Pellatt, military officer and founder of Toronto Electric Light Company, I couldn’t help but think of more meaningful (and charitable) ways to spend this money. This building, as beautiful as it stands, is a constant reminder that wealth does not give one happiness. Sir Pellatt later died alone at his chauffeur’s house where he moved in after declaring bankruptcy. That wine cellar though…

Have you ever visited a place that brings up such thoughts / feelings?
