The Peacock Room at Sammezzano Castle in Italy

It's hard to believe that this jaw-dropping room is located in an abandoned castle in Tuscany, Italy.  Built in 1605 and once housed kings, Sammezzano Castle now sits atop a hill in a Tuscan oak tree grove untouched by modern times. Within the castle you can find the Peacock Room, a hidden jewel features intricate Moorish designs and a breathtaking assortment of patterns and colors. The beauty of the memorizing interiors is simply beyond comparison.
