This oolite limestone (not coral) structure was created by the eccentric Edward Leedskalnin (1887-1951). The Coral Castle Museum is constructed of many megalithic stones (mainly limestone formed from coral). Each stone weighs several tons which leads to many popular tales revolving about how they were moved by supernatural or advanced scientific means. The Coral Castle grounds consist of 1,100 short tons of stones that form walls, carvings, furniture, and a castle tower. The stones are fastened without mortar using only their weight to keep them together and it remains one of Florida's most popular tourist attractions.
