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.

The Peacock Room at Castello di Sammezzano in Reggello, Tuscany, Italy.  Atop a hill in a Tuscan oak tree grove, you’ll find the abandoned Sammezzano Castle. The derelict building, built in 1605 with funds from Spanish nobility, features intricate Moorish designs and a breathtaking assortment of patterns and colors. Inside, the words “Non Plus Ultra” — meaning “nothing further beyond” in Latin — stands out above an archway.

Sammezzano castle, Florence, Italy South of Florence there is this AMAZING castle. 365 rooms... all different from one another. Sadly.. you can't view them without filling out a form on their website and attending RARE openings for viewing. Holy Tuscany wishlist.
