Casa Loma is a beautiful historic landmark in the heart of Toronto, Canada but history isn't all this destination has to offer.  Casa Loma has been home to many film & TV productions, including one of my favorite; Shadowhunters!  I was able to speak with Holly, Chief Operating Officer at Casa Loma and she told me a bit more about this stunning location. 

The Castle began construction in 1911, far before the creation of Shadowhunters, and took over 3 years and 3.5 Million to build-which makes perfect sense for it to be used as the prestigious Iron Sisters Citadel!

Shadowhunters used several exterior and interior backdrops for episode 2x06 'Iron Sisters' , including the Gardens and main Hall. The same hall was used for the Mortal Instruments movie, also shot at Casa Loma a few years prior.
