This is the west side of the quarry with a sign stating that Ed quarried the coral for the Coral Castle here. In reality, there were 2 other quarries that were filled in. This is the only one that remains uncovered. Notice the scrape marks on the coral blocks forming the south wall. These are marks made by steel wedges that Ed used to pry the coral from the ground. Strangely, most of the largest pieces of coral, including the 18,000 pound "9 Ton Gate" do not have these markings.

Entrance to the Coral Castle. The tall rectangular piece of coral is from Florida City, and the coral creating the archway at the entrance is from Homestead. The 3 Ton Gate, which spins with the push of a finger, is to the right. The dolman or "menhir" stone is in the distance to the right as well.
