Information about the Paragon is rare. The old 5-Star Grand Hotel closed in 2007 because of decreasing number of tourists visiting the small town somewhere in the nowhere of the Italian mountains.

Such a shame what has happened to the grand hall with the graffiti. I do love those paintings in #6 though. Some fantastic photos as usual :thumb

Pretty cool place really, if you hadn’t of said it was a hotel I’m not sure I would have guessed personally. Has more of a hospital ring to it, see stuff that reminds me of west park in the UK.

      The rehab center consists of several buildings in very different state of preservation. While some rooms of the spa hotel still look almost as good as new, an outbuilding (possibly former apartments of employees) is already partially collapsing.
      Unfortunately I don't know anything about the history.

      I found the house with the red dress by coincidence - discovered this summer while visiting the "Chiesa in tempesta e pioggia". The house was right next to this church, and obviously it was also abandoned.
      The access way and the property were already quite overgrown. The old wooden door just stood open, so the house literally invited me to take a look inside.
       
      It seems the building has been originally a mill and was probably rebuilt for living only later. As a decorative element, the large millstone was still in the middle of the living room.
      Upstairs were various pieces of furniture with floral paintings from the time of historicism (1850-1890). Furthermore, in front of the house was an old wooden cart / hay wagon, which was also decorated with floral paintings.
      All in all, a nice chance find. Besides, really great, absolutely no vandalism there.

      Meanwhile, this Italian villa of a football coach is pretty well known, and several things has changed there.
      Only a dusty dirt road leads to it and from outside the house looks quite inconspicuous. But once again proves: Don't judge a book by its cover...!

      I already have had this castle on my map for a few years and I also wanted to visit it since then. But finally I only came to its area this summer.
       
      Located on the hill above the castle is a chapel and on the way there, along the wall around the castle, were really a lot of tourists. But luckily we found a way over the wall in a blind spot.
       
      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 the castle is mostly stripped, but it still has some great rooms & ceilings.
