"Wedding cake" castle sits atop a cactus-covered hill. – In Short
Italian immigrant Alessio Carraro built Tovrea Castle around 70 years ago for use as a grand hotel. After the stock market crash in '29, the land was sold to Edward Tovrea and his wife, who lived there until 1969. The three-tiered castle was built without any plans and Carraro used many recycled materials on the interior. Outside, a 10-acre desert garden was filled with more than 300 varieties of cacti, walkways and two fish ponds. The Tovreas added a large reflecting pool, bird aviary, rose garden, a concrete patio for entertaining and finished it off with peacocks.
