In the heart of Calabria on the outskirts of the mountain village of Saracena, a 17th century castle with land which could be cultivated into a vineyard is for sale. The castle has been abandoned for over 50 years and is in need of renovation. The main structure covers over 1500 sqm with many of the original features still intact. Surrounded by 12000 sqm of workable land, this is a great opportunity to develop the castle into both a home and business.
Saracena is home to just under 4000 people with the town dating back to the 11th century and the arrival of Norman conquerors. A traditional mountain town, Saracena is a honeycomb of narrow streets, piazzas with local bars, shops and restaurants. The local cuisine consists of many pasta dishes with goat, lamb and salami. Steeped in history, the town celebrates the patron saint San Leone twice yearly - in February, a 2 day festival and again in August. The streets of Saracena are alive with local music, dancing and pyrotechnics. The town’s two museums, several churches and convents are testament to the history of the town with buildings dating back to medieval times.
