Hearst Castle

It’s called Hearst Castle but it’s not a castle like the middle ages european castles, it’s a group of 4 houses being the main one called “Casa Grande”
it’s 68,500 sq feet construction and has 38 rooms.
What is extraordinary about this group of houses is the art in them, mr William Randolph Hearts was an art collector, he bought millions of dollars worth of art from europeans that needed money after WW2, every room has art , form floor to ceiling, the main house is a replica of a church from a spanish villa, actually the whole place is a replica of a spanish villa .
There are also original statues on the gardens that date back some 5000 years form egypt.The Hearst Castle is located in San Simeon California.
The whole place is a Museum , and to me it has been one of the most interesting museums i’ve been to.
