€3,500,000 ID: 147141

In the north of the Marche region, on the border with the Romagna Riviera, is the village of Tavoleto, "Castrum Tauleti", with a castle dating back to 14th Century built to protect the borders of the Malatesta lands.

In the 15th century it was conquered and destroyed by Federico da Montefeltro who had the castle rebuilt by the architect Giorgio Martini, who also built the palace of Urbino and the fortress of Mondavio.

At the end of the 18th century it was destroyed by a fire and the Church State, which now owned these territories, ordered its demolition and reconstruction. In 1885 it was assigned to the Earl Pietrangiolini together with the surrounding territories. In the 1960s, it was bought and restored according to the design of the Montefeltro era. The current owners have continued the work of bringing it back to its original splendour.
