A free attraction but they do appreciate donations. It's a known castle built by a local man starting at a young age while still adding to his property. His vision shows a castle within built walls and maybe small posts for overnight guests. Upon arrival, it snowed the night before, so it was a bit muddy...you park along the road... 更多
So this is one of those places that is not a bucket list item but it's still worth the time to go or to make the time to go. You need to go with an open mind and for the beauty of the area it's in. The castle has been a labor of love for 1 man these many years.... 更多
The Beautiful castle is built by Jim Bishop and he continues to add onto the building. You can make a donation to help him continue to maintain and build onto the castle. The castle includes beautiful stained glass work, I believe some of it was donated by some artists, beautiful iron work, and so much more to explore. I must... 更多
If you're passing through the area and have time, it might be worth a stop for a few min. But I'd never go out of my way for it. The owner is just as unstable as the structure he is famous for, and his ramblings on signs all over the place ruins what little enjoyment a person could get from... 更多

Truly, who would have expected a Gaudi-esk castle in the low mountains of Colorado?! This is an incredible feat of architecture, and an even more incredible feat given the inherent difficulties of construction due to the geography of the land. The castle's levels are broken into the 1st lower level, the 2nd level which has wonderful arches, the 3rd level... 更多
Pretty cool. It is still under work , but has some gorgeous stained glass and really cool stone work. Walking around up top was cool as well . FCC Florence which houses ADX super max is near and well worth a drive by also. Be sure to check that out too.
This was spectacular. It's hard to put into words. The spiral staircases reminded of blarney castle. I have lived in Colorado for 30 years and never knew about this. I will be recommending this to all my friends. Some of the railings at the top would definitely not meet osha standards. This adds to the thrill of it. There is... 更多
