Hearst Castle Now Open for Tours.

Advanced reservations recommended. Face coverings are not currently required, but strongly recommended.

Walk through the first building ever completed at La Cuesta Encantada, which served as the Hearst family’s earliest residence in the summer of 1922. Referred to as “House B,” its formal name was Casa del Monte—Spanish for “House of the Mountain”—which referred to the sweeping views of the Santa Lucia Mountains.
