The castle was built in the 17th century by a Spanish nobleman and has lived many lives since, including a stint as a luxury hotel and bar. Though it’s gone through periods of abandonment, it’s never been forgotten thanks to the powers of Instagram and the hashtag #sammezzano, where the castle’s ornate design has been documented by many an aesthete.

The building covers an expansive 58,448 square feet, which includes the grounds and a park. The castle itself, restored in the 19th century, is three stories and has 365 rooms—one for each day of the year if you like it—outfitted in ornate Moorish style with colorful patterned tiles and domed ceilings. Excessive? Totally. But for more than $18 million and unlimited Instagram backdrops, we’d expect nothing less. Check out the full listing for more photos.
