Screaming Heads of ontario

Screaming Heads of Midlothian is one of the most unusual places to visit in Ontario

The Screaming Heads od Midlothian are highlighted in numerous videos, documentaries and books on some of the world's most bizarre places.

This enchanted garden is less than three hours from Toronto, and, because of it's eerie vibe, is the perfect spot to visit for those interested in the spooky and unusual.

The Screaming Heads are located in Burk's Falls, and is half-art gallery, half-outdoor playground.

This surreal property is owned and operated by the Screaming Heads artist himself, Peter Camani, on his 300-acre land.

Camani, a retired art teacher (whose art hangs in The Vatican and Buckingham Palace) lives in a castle on the property which was featured on the first episode of MTV's Extreme Cribs. 

Visitors are welcome to wander around and admire the 20-ft concrete sculptures that adorn his gardens, including heads and hands that seem to be exploding out of the earth - making the property feel otherworldly.

The sprawling land contains over 100 of these massive sculptures that can be enjoyed up close, touched, and even walked through, setting the scene for some epic photos.

Often referred to as Ontario's Stonehenge, the arrangement of the artwork may seem random, but seen from above, you'll discover the concrete sculptures form the shape of a dragon.

The Screaming Heads of Midlothian is open year round, but perhaps is best seen in fall because of the vibrant autumn foliage of the Almaguin Highlands Region.

Although it's free to enter, there is a donation box at the entrance, and visitors are encouraged to bring donations of non-perishable food items for the Burk's Falls and District Food Bank.
