Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
Patty Hearst hosts this Travel Channel video about the beautiful San Simeon castle built by her grandfather, William Randolph Hearst. Many viewers may recall Orson Welles' portrayal of media giant Hearst in the classic film Citizen Kane. As Patty Hearst points out, California's hilltop Hearst Castle boasts 38 bedrooms and 40 bathrooms while commanding a striking view of the San Simeon Bay below. Since 1958, when the Hearst family gave the castle to the state, more than 30,000 people have toured this architectural masterpiece.
