Visit the former home of the Hawaiian royal family and the oldest continually occupied residence in the Western Hemisphere.
From Hawaii to the Caribbean, this is a tropical tour of some of the most exotic and historic mansions in the world.
Visit the magnificent Iolani Palace in Honolulu, originally built for King Kalakaua and Queen Kapi`olani, and for his sister, Queen Lili`uokalani, Hawaii's last monarch. Highlights include the throne room and the splendid tropical gardens, and rare footage shows what the palace was like when it was still a royal home.
Puerto Rico's La Forteleza is the oldest residence in the Western Hemisphere. Built in 1544, it has hosted John F. Kennedy and Charles Lindbergh within its ancient walls, and boasts a magnificent sunken garden.
Also in Puerto Rico, Serrales Castle was built in the thirties with money made from sugar and rum. Its elegant towers, sprawling courtyard and Spanish Revival style make it the most impressive mansion on the island.
Join AMERICA'S CASTLES for a thrilling tour of these PALACES IN PARADISE.
