Booking Your Tickets

The historic Tovrea Castle at Carraro Heights was opened for public tours by Tovrea Carraro Society on March 10, 2012.

Regular tours are approximately 90 minutes and include the historic Castle's main floor and basement, extensive grounds and cactus gardens surrounding the Castle.

Guests are greeted by Tovrea Carraro Society Certified Volunteers at the Visitor Center and taken through the Carraro Cactus Gardens on a tram with a docent. The tour winds through the beautiful 44 acres, viewing the outer buildings, before arriving at Tovrea Castle.
