THE MOST INTERESTING PLACES IN ITALY YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF

#4: Castello di Sammezzano

The extravagant residence Castello di Sammezzano sits on top of a hill in Tuscany, Northern Italy. Originally it was built in the Moorish style in 1605 for Ximenes d’Aragona and then re-designed between 1853 and 1889. After the war the castello was used as a luxury hotel until closure in the mid to late 1990’s. It was abandoned until April 2012 when the FPXA committee was formed, aiming to promote and enhance the castle.

According to a google translation on trip advisor guided tours are available from time to time, with information on the facebook page.
