In the middle of Tuscany sits an empty technicolor palace. Castello di Sammezzano, a resplendent Moorish revival castle with an intricate, wildly-colored interior, was erected in the early 17th century by a Spanish nobleman. More than 200 years later, the 365-room palace was remodeled. After World War II, Sammezzano became a luxury hotel, but was closed in the 1990s. Now, a preservation committee is working to restore and preserve the colorful castle. Peek inside; you won't be disappointed.
