Count Cesare Mattei was not technically a king, but he was the king of his own castle in Italys Northern Apennines. The inventor of a homeopathic treatment for pain using the physical energy of plants, Count Mattei began building Rocchetta Mattei on a scenic hilltop in 1850 and didnt step foot outside the castle for the last 20 years of his life. Join us for a tour through the labyrinth of eclectic rooms, including a spectacular chapel resembling Spains Cathedral of Crdoba.
