Tuscan castle

According to Sotheby’s International Realty, a Medieval castle has just gone on the market; for a mere $29 million USD, this castle in Tuscany can be yours, too.

The listing says that the property was built in the 12th century, and held through much of the 15th Century by the Piccolomini family (whose other claim to fame is producing two popes: Pius II and Pius III).

The scholarly importance of the property is less certain; while it was heavily redecorated in the 18th century, it supposedly maintains much of its original architecture. The most interesting part about the property is that its original owners are almost completely unknown… sounds like a fun mystery to me!
