She sits majestically atop the hill, patiently awaiting her guests who do not come. Tovrea Castle at Carraro Heights is an Historic icon and a Jewel in the Sonoran Desert quietly glowing each evening as a beacon of hope in our uncertain lives – a way to make passersby smile – enchanting all who come under her watchful gaze. She holds within her 100+ years of Arizona History – the past, our present and the future – and the tales she tells are wonderful to hear, her charm enveloping all who see her.
Her guardians, Tovrea Carraro Society, are her daily companions, making sure her luscious Cactus Gardens are cared for and her wardrobe of Stucco and Stone stands strong. They continue to keep up with the demands of this lovely Lady of Phoenix, even without her much-loved visitors from far and wide.
But times are tough and with no guests or events, the dollars are tight to do all that she requires. Yet, she has hope that they will open again soon to tell these new tales adding them to a rich and fabled story of surviving under the southwest sun – thanks to the generosity of the Fans and Friends of Tovrea Castle at Carraro Heights, who will help her maintain while she waits.
Thank you for helping Preserve Arizona’s History in Castle-form!
