Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of castles in Canada. Most cannot properly be described as true castles. They are primarily country houses, follies, or other types of buildings built to give the appearance of a castle. They are usually designed in the Gothic Revival, Châteauesque, Renaissance Revival, Romanesque Revival, Scots Baronial or Tudor Revival styles.
