Casa Loma looks like a castle, but it’s really a gothic residence. Now it’s a museum, although judging by the look of things when I went there, it’s also a nice place to have a wedding. Who wouldn’t want to get married at the place where they filmed scenes from X-men?
I had some time to kill before my show at Tarragon, so I decided to wander up to Casa Loma – emphasis on the word ‘up’. At least it was a nice day for a walk…
I didn’t go inside, because it was late.
Also, I didn’t want to interrupt the wedding group, which was taking photos on the right of my photo.
I’m not sure how many steps there are, but it can’t be too many. I mean, I did it in one go without wanting to die, so it must be relatively easy. Just watch out for joggers – I had 3 pass me by on the way up.
Toronto surprised me by being a really green city. There are trees everywhere, and it’s just so… filled with nature. It’s a nice location.
On a side note, if you’ve a fan of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, then this is a great place to visit. You can see where the fight between Scott and Lucas happens, and then the railing that Lucas grinds. That was pretty much all I was thinking of as I went up and down the stairs.
