Quigley’s Castle is a castle in the “man’s home is his castle” sense of the term, not in the Buckingham Palace sense. Actually, it’s a woman’s home, namely Elise Quigley, who started collecting rocks, shells, and crystals from hillsides and creek beds as a 9-year-old girl. The mother of 5 eventually used her finds as building materials. The result is unique, beautiful and whimsical and yes, a little strange…and well worth a visit.
Photos were taken by my cousin, Ilaria Rattaro, from Genova Italy. The inside of the house is fascinating, but we’re only including shots of the grounds and exterior. For more information, please click the link on our Activities page.
