In the Santa Lucia Mountains of California on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean, craftsmen labored nearly 28 years to create La Cuesta Encantada "The Enchanted Hill", a magnificent estate of 165 rooms, and 127 acres of gardens, terraces, pools, and walkways. Its rooms were furnished with an impressive collection of Spanish and Italian antiques and art.
Tickets are sold for specific tour times and may be charged to your MasterCard, Visa or Discover Card. Tours depart from the Visitor Center by bus and an audio tape program provides background information during the 15 minute, 5-mile trip up to the Castle. Since tours often sell out in advance, reservations are recommended.
Hearst Castle is open for tours daily, except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. Four daytime tours and one Evening Tour are available. Day tours usually begin at 8:20 AM daily (December start times may vary). The last tour starts at 3:20 PM in winter, later in summer. Evening Tour start times vary according to the time of sunset.
