If you can't visit medieval castles in Europe, you can visit this medieval-looking fortress in Regina. With imported ancient limestone, lavish furnishings, and oil paintings, you will believe you have been transported back in time. The original Stone Hall castle was built by Francis Nicholson for his wife when their original home was damaged in a devastating cyclone. His wife was so distressed she pleaded for him to build a fortress that could withstand the storms of the prairies, thus the fortress we see today was built. Definitely a must-see in Regina, as decided by the Swoop team.
