In fact, ancient castles in Europe have long been for sale with a vast range of prices. Most are worth millions of dollars while some remain at a surprisingly low price. You can even own an Italian castle for free, of course, with conditions from the government.

In recent years, the Italian government has decided to give 103 ancient castles for free to boost the economy of their neighborhood.

As these castles scatter in remote rural areas, far from the main road, they were not an attractive deal to any buyer. However, the government would not charge buyers a coin if they promise to renovate the building and turn it into tourist attractions.

New owners of these castles may also aim to convert them into restaurants, hotels, or any profitable businesses. The government hopes to encourage people to invest in these ancient constructions as well as resuscitate the tourism industry.

Most designs in the castles remain in their original form but need renovation.

Moreover, if the plan proves successful, it will ease the burden for Italian tourist hot spots such as Venice. Along with that, the economy at remote places would benefit from the new services.

To be specific, candidates for these free castles would be given 9 years to convert their buildings. If they realize their promises, they will have another 9-year free rental to develop their businesses here.
