The three-floor castle was first built in the early 1600s, but the current building was renovated in the mid-19th century by Italian politician and architect Ferdinando Panciatichi Ximenes d’Aragona, who added the eclectic Moorish-inspired elements found throughout. The palatial property has been owned by several rich men and was also operated as a hotel cum bar in the early 2000s.
The castle has 365 different rooms, each with a name and a decorative theme, such as the White Room, with Moroccan mosaic tiles and ancient chandelier-decked ceilings; the Room of the Lilies; Room of the Lovers; Room of the Stalactites; Room of the Mirrors; the octagon-shaped Smoking Room; and a small, attractive chapel.
