Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, British Columbia

Completed in 1890, Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, British Columbia is a historic mansion that was commissioned by wealthy coal baron and railway developer Robert Dunsmuir.

Built as a family residence, the home has over 35 rooms and features elaborate stonework, tiles, stained glass, and wood carvings throughout. Sadly, Robert Dunsmuir passed before the castle was finished, but his sons saw the project to completion. In fact, his son James Dunsmuir also went on to commission Hatley Castle, another impressive landmark on Vancouver Island.
