    Default Castello Di R, Italy - September 2016


    The castle was built by a disgruntled Count after an inheritance dispute on the turn of the 20th century didn't go their way. The Count employed an architect from Turin and lived a lavish lifestyle for over 40 years until he passed away. A few years later the castle was left abandoned.

    We arrived here late in the afternoon and spent a while finding a way in, but it was definitely worth it. It's a shame we lost the light here, because there were many other ornate rooms to photography - but at least the top of the tower yielded a beautiful sunset over the hills.*

















    As always, thanks for looking! :D
    I'm probably not in the UK right now..

    A nice castle but needs some attention - particularly in the paint section. Nice photographs though as per your usual.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
