a mad inventors castle

Located in Italy’s Northern Apennines, this beautiful and eccentric castle was built for the self taught inventor, Count Cesare Mattei – the inventor of a homeopathic treatment for pain using the physical energy of plants. Each room is a spectacular delight and different from one to the next. For the last 20 years of his life, Count Mattei did not step a single foot out of his castle, and after his passing, the castle was completely abandoned until an independent group came in around 2005 and restored it back to its formal glory, and opened it up for the public to traverse its halls. What a grand palace it is!
