Old Castle For Sale In Emilia Romagna
Wonderful property for sale on the hills between Tuscany and Emilia Romagna
Wonderful castle for sale in the inland of the Adriatic Riviera
This wonderful and perfectly-preserved castle for sale stands on the hills of Tuscan Romagna, in the province of Forlì Cesena, and was built as a fortress in 1564 by Baldassarre Lanci, on orders from Cosimo I de' Medici.
Besides being a good governor, Grand Duke Cosimo was also a skilled architect with a fine taste for art, building a big number of fortresses in Tuscany and in the neighbouring Emilia Romagna.
Born as a military fortress, this property has maintained the severe, spectacular looks it has always had. It is still home to some wonderful halls with wooden ceilings, fine frescoes by Felice Giani, and some majestic galleries, former defence posts, which are now event venues.
A big panoramic terrace measuring 360 sqm overlooks the lawn surrounding this property, which also features a courtyard with centuries-old plants.
This estate is currently a private home that includes, besides the castle, a complex of residential rooms with some wonderful and finely-painted wooden ceilings, an inn, a walkway, three areas that were used by guards, and some cellars with old barrels.
This complex has been maintained with great care by the owners it has had over the centuries and is, still now, a symbol of the magnificence and grandeur of the Medici family.
