Some stories are just stories ; they are not history! Just like this castle.
This one looks like a castle , has a castle-like name , but it’s actually a winery. A beautiful winery which I want to remember as a castle ; even though wines are good enough there !
It’s newly constructed , though it looks old.Wikipedia says : The castle interiors, which include 107 rooms on 8 levels above and below ground, cover approximately 121,000 square feet (11,200 m2). Among many other features it has: a moat; a drawbridge; defensive towers; an interior courtyard; a torture chamber; a chapel/church; a knights’ chamber; and a 72 by 30 feet (9.1 m) great hall with a 22-foot (6.7 m)-high coffered ceiling. The torture chamber has an authentic 300-year-old iron maiden which Sattui states he bought for $13,000 in Pienza, Italy, a replica rack, prison chambers and other torture devices.   The great hall features frescoes painted by two Italian artists who took about a year and a half to complete and showcases a 500 year old fireplace.
After the visit , I told my friends : We can re-create a castle , we can’t re-create its history!
