Booking Your Tickets
The historic Tovrea Castle at Carraro Heights was opened for public tours by Tovrea Carraro Society on March 10, 2012.
The 90-minute Regular Tour includes the historic Castle’s main floor and basement, extensive grounds and cactus gardens surrounding the Castle, as well as an opportunity to pick up mementos in the Treasures at the Castle Gift Shop. Special Event Tours vary in length. Please be sure to read the tour description for any tour before booking .
Guests are greeted by Tovrea Carraro Society at the Visitor Center and taken through the Carraro Cactus Gardens by tram with a certified docent. The tour winds through the beautiful 44 acres, viewing the outer buildings, before arriving at Tovrea Castle.
The tour is ADA accessible; please let us know that you are bringing a wheelchair or walker. We cannot accommodate MOTORIZED assistive devices (wheelchairs, scooters, etc). Other Special Arrangements should be made at least 2 weeks prior to your tour date and time, particularly for assistive devices for hearing and sight impairments.

Tours are a ‘go’ rain or shine; we advise our guests to wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions.
Due to occupancy limits and the historic nature of the site, tour size is limited and tours must be booked in advance. Regular Tours are held on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays; Group Tours on Thursdays and Special Events on Wednesdays. The Castle and Grounds are ‘dark’ on Mondays and Tuesdays for maintenance, repairs and ongoing upkeep.
