The best architecture at the best location
Being crowned a historical landmark and architectural beauty, the Heart Castle is a mansion that was built under the name of William Randolph Hearst. The architect behind its glorious design was Julia Morgan who designed this piece of beauty in between the years of 1919 and 1947.
William Randolph was more like a newspaper magnet that attracted all the newscasters and reporters towards him. This mansion was made for him to live with his family and friends and enjoy heaven on earth. It was quite unfortunate when he died in 1951, not getting enough time to enjoy the leisure of living in that glorious mansion. After he died, nobody was selfish to claim this property and hence it was donated to charity in California. Since then, many people have come all the way to California to experience the leisure of living in a huge and beautiful mansion. Many tours are made here and people loving praising the designs and interiors of the castle.
