The peak from where this legendary estate rises into the sky is known as La
Cuesta Encantada—“The Enchanted Hill.” And there’s little question that
Hearst Castle is California’s most magical landmark. Designed by the
great architect Julia Morgan, the Mediterranean Revival estate, now
California’s most visited state park, is home to the priceless (and some
say eccentric) art collection of newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst.
Choose from a variety of tours to visit the main castle and equally
impressive guest homes, and to visit outdoor pools and gardens where
the likes of Cary Grant planned amorous rendezvous.
