Hearst Castle, located a mere 7 minute drive from the El Colibri Hotel and Spa is the treasure of the Central Coast. Visiting this extraordinary and majestic home of the late William Randolph Hearst is, in itself, reason enough to plan a trip to the Central Coast. Whether your interests rest with history, architecture, the arts, landscaping and gardens or perhaps the Hollywood gossip and stories of the 40’s – you are sure to be satisfied.
I’ve been to the castle several times and it seems I learn or see something new each time. Each time I visit I try to hone in on a particular area of interest, and with that theme seek out everything I can learn. Oh my …. the learning and discovery is endless. And it seems one new discovery opens up a whole new world for yet further investigation up on Hearst’s beautiful hillside castle.
As you can tell, I’m a bit passionate about my affair with the castle. Here’s a link to one of their web cams for a virtual tour. Have fun… and check back on the blog often as I plan to post more info about Hearst’s “La Cuesta Encantada.”
