Casa Loma is a supernatural hub with haunted stories that include tales of paranormal activity, spooky voices and invisible hands.


Casa Loma is a gothic style castle in Toronto, Canada filled with 98 rooms, secret passages, beautiful gardens and a haunted history. There have been sightings of a woman who haunts the halls of Casa Loma. Staff and visitors have also claimed to see paranormal activities, hear spooky voices and feel unseen grabbing hands.

I didn’t see any ghosts or feel invisible hands pulling my hair, but I did get a great view of downtown Toronto. Climbing the narrow tower was my favorite part. Many visitors before me left their mark there – literally. The walls inside the were covered in graffiti. They were mostly small etchings in various languages from travelers all over the world who made their way up the insanely narrow stairs. Instead of etching my name to the collection, I did an impromptu photoshoot. Casa Loma closes at 5PM so to make our trek worth the hike, we lingered around the front garden to take in the castle at sunset.

After walking around town all day, I ended the evening at an all-you-can-eat sushi buffet. #Enoughsaid. As soon as the sushi hit the table, it was absolute silence for the next 10 minutes as we inhaled EVERYTHING.
