Italy Castello G, Italy - September 2017

Recommended Posts

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.

Wow that's impressive! Was the church all part of the same place?

:comp:

 

Cheers dude. Yeah I think it's the bit in the middle next to the tower. Got a bit disorientated inside there. Nice place for a day out :)
