Coral Castle is not too far from Miami, and it is at the same time a very interesting and mysterious attraction. The structure comprises numerous large stones, mostly limestone formed from coral, each weighing several tons. Coral Castle was created in 1920, when Edward’s fiancée, Agnes, from Latvia, rejected him just a day before their wedding.
