Castle Hill, known in Maori as Kura Tawhiti, consists of weathered limestone formations that reminded early travelers of European castles. The front of Christchurch Cathedral is made from Castle Hill limestone. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe of the Narnia fantasies by C.S. Lewis, was filmed here. Felt like we might meet some gnomes too.
