Interested in taking a closer look at Old Pasadena’s historic Castle Green? Then come out and take part in this years Holiday Tour.
Take a step back in time and marvel in the beauty and blend of Moroccan and Victorian architecture. Built in 1898 as part of the resort Hotel Green, the Castle Green is now privately owned apartments and is generally closed to the public. However, this Sunday the building will open its gates for all to enjoy their annual Holiday Tour.

You will be able to explore the Grand Salon, the Moorish and Turkish Rooms, the Sunroom and Veranda. You are invited to take in the beauty of the open cage elevator, lovely fireplaces and the decadent hand-carved wood work and marble staircases. You will also be able to walk the bridge and view the penthouse that has a 360 degree view of Pasadena!
Exhibits and sign boards describing the particular rooms will be on display detailing the particular rooms and features of each. Sweets, coffee, cider and food sampling from local Pasadena caterers will be provided.
The Castle Green is the last remaining survivor of the early hotel period in Pasadena . The tours of the castle are organized by volunteer members of Friends of the Castle Green a nonprofit support system whose mission is to provide and implement restoration to the building. All of the funds raised through the tours and merchandise sales are dedicated to the preservation of this Pasadena landmark.
