Sam’s Castle in Pacifica, CA – New Bizarre Ghost-Filled Attraction
I am excited to share the news that the infamous Sam’s castle is being ready to open its doors for visitors!
The 103-year-old dwelling has been used as an abortion clinic, a speakeasy, a brothel, a home residence, etc. Throughout the years ghostly encounters have been reported by multiple witnesses.
The last owner Sam Mazza filled this place with the eclectic collection suits of armor, statues, swords, busts of Greek gods, organs, coats of arms and a throne. From the sound of it he was an eccentric collector of oddities and curiosities.
Will it become as popular as the Hearst Castle in San Simeon, CA? I certainly hope so! The Bay Area is full of strange, mysterious places. I believe this one is great, yet undiscovered addition.

Pacifica is a quaint coastal city, located between San Francisco and Half Moon Bay. It’s a popular surfing and hiking spot!
Oh, and if ghost hunting is your thing, I’d strongly recommend to drive to Moss Beach Distillery in the nearby Half Moon Bay for a delicious dinner, ocean view and a possible meeting of the Blue Lady (the story was recreated on a popular NBC TV Unsolved Mysteries). By the way, the restaurant is dog-friendly!
