Bet the Ranch & Storm the Castle Day Tour Calendar
Jensen-Alvarado Ranch & Benedict Castle
With Included Castle Lunch

Departing: Wednesday, October 17, 2018

1 Day Package

Price: $89 Per Person


It’s not every day you get the opportunity to explore a late 1880s ranch and a magnificent castle! Join us as we travel to the Inland Empire to visit the Jensen-Alvarado Historic Ranch, demonstrating life as it was lived in the 1880s. Here, docents in period attire offer hands-on demonstrations of tortilla and butter making, adobe brick making, ice cream cranking, weaving and various farming techniques from the 19th century. This afternoon we’ll tour and dine in a Medieval Spanish-style castle. Built in 1931, Benedict Castle was designed by noted architect Henry Jeckel for Charles Benedict, an affluent New Yorker whose European travels inspired him to build his own castle home in Riverside. Patterned after the Alhambra Castle in Spain, it merges the architecture of the Spanish-Moorish and Mission Revival periods and has been used as a set location for several movies including the Hunchback of Notre Dame and Bride of Frankenstein. Enjoy an included lunch in this beautiful yet haunting castle! Suggested: walking shoes.
Depart: FV 8:00 a.m., SBL 8:20, VS 8:45. Return: 6:00 p.m.
