Italy The Yellow Curtain Villa - May '16

That's amazing! What a beautiful building :) Particularly like that shot showing the base of the curvy stairwell through that open door in image 3 :thumb

Thanks! You mean the chapel I think. 2 friends did, I didn't. It was too noisy so I stayed in the main place.

That's a pity, was a nice one. You can see my photos of the chapel here:

      I can't find much history about this place except it was built in the 1950s and abandoned in the 90s due to a more modern replacement being built nearby. Sadly the turbine hall has been completely gutted but the control room was absolutely pukka. A nice chilled explore with @Miss.Anthrope

      19. The trip wouldn't have been complete without a quick peek inside the cooling tower.

      The castle was built in 1860 as a summer residence on a small island. It remained in the hands of the same family until 1975 when it was sold on. Developers eventually planned to convert it into a 5 star beauty farm but they went bust in 2010 half way through the renovation. Work stopped and the castle has been up for sale ever since. Unfortunately it's in pretty poor condition now and much of it is stripped but there were a few nice bits left, especially the church which would have been epic without the scaffolding, and some other interesting finds along the way. Italy has some cool places! Visited with @Miss.Anthropeand thanks to @Andyfor the heads up with this place. 
       
      1. What it looks like from above (not my photo) 

       
      2. The first bit we found our way into, just a tiny isolated chapel room but there was something quite interesting buried underneath the hole in the floor

       
      3. A mass grave of human skulls and bones. Nice way to start the day off eh! 

       
      4. After much hiding from strange noises we found our way inside the main building.

      16. This was where the choir would have sat, hidden behind the alter.

       
      17. Epic ceiling

      19. The altar completely surrounded by scaffolding
