This place in itself is an enigma. How did small Latvian immigrant Edward Leedskalnin build a huge castle out of enormous coral blocks? He mined the rock himself, then carved and arranged the huge boulders at night. He never gave away his secrets, but some believe aliens or ghosts assisted him. Some visitors have sensed the presence of energy vortices and seen shadowy figures here.
