Built in 1930, the Spanish castle, the tsunami in the rainy season of Queensland in 1946 became the current site, interpreting the animated inspiration of the Japanese Hayao Miyazaki and the castle dream of the Spanish Jose!
In addition to the castle ruins, you can also see natural waterfalls, verdant rainforests, and fireflies at night. This fairytale scene makes this one of Australia's three major wedding venues!
Paronella Park, known as the "City of the Sky", is similar to the scene in Hayao Miyazaki's animation.
I have heard of Italy's Bailu Lizhi, I have been to Meyola, Greece. I just want to see which one is more like
the owner of the park is Mr. Jose from Spain, but this is not the Netherlands. Which husband of San Mao, he went to Australia to work hard, hoping to build a castle for his fiancee. When he returned to Spain with his savings, he found that his fiance had remarried and turned to the wife of his fiancee, and the girl was willing to go with him to Australia to open up the wasteland. Jose fulfilled his promise and created this family by himself. castle.
Actually, it is more like Angkor Wat than the city of the sky. But I heard a good story of persisting in my dreams. It is also a good harvest.
Driving 110 kilometers south of Cairns, it takes an hour and a half to drive. It was named the first tourist attraction in Cairns. Before I came here, I really didn't know exactly what the charm is here. I just watched everyone's compliments, and I always have to find out what it is.
Actually, the expectations before this were not high, but I didn't expect to change my mind after the tour. It was unexpectedly good. Especially suitable for some MM to take some beautiful photos.
There is a story about dreams here. The dream of the Spanish Jos Paronica was from a young age to build a castle of his own. He can only regard this as a distant dream, but he did not expect him to become a wealthy businessman over time. So in 1930, he spent 30,000 yuan to choose a place in Australia to build this Spanish-style castle with his own hands.
The most not to be missed here is the night 6
"Everyone has a dream, but most people forget their dreams." Only, Jose Paloni is not there! When he was a child, his grandmother told him a lot of stories about the castle, which made him determined to have a castle of his own when he grew up. At 26, he said goodbye to his family and his fiance, and came to Spain from Spain to work hard, from a harvesting sugar cane. After 13 years of hard work, the peasants have accumulated a fortune, and Jose finally has to practice the castle dream. At that time, he was almost single-handed on this land. It took six years to build two castles and a series of recreational facilities, which were open to the public for paid use. It used to be the most famous entertainment venue in the Cairns area. Many people came here to play, and there were self-driving trains that sneaked on sugar cane.
As you can imagine, in the 1930s, the castles of Jose had water and electricity. They could watch movies, eat ice cream, play dances, play tennis, set up meals, and enjoy the scenery. Pastime, even if it is put into today, does not fall.
Dream, in addition to hard work, persistence, listening to the story of Jose, do you think that your dreams can be realized?
