Built by the Nannavecchia family, part of the nobility, this aristocratic home dates back to the 1600′s.  Steeped in history forming part of the original Borgo of Ceglie Messapica located next to the Ducale Castle and the Matrice Church.

One of the most important buildings in the town from an historical and architectural point of view.

Inside you will find a small theatre and church with many original features remaining.  The property has been abandoned for some time and lends itself as a luxury boutique hotel or a luxury private residence.

Situated over 4 floors, at ground floor high vaulted ceilings that was originally used as the stables, stairs lead up to a mezzanine level and onto first floor most rooms with original vaulted ceilings.

Access to the living quarters is also by a separate entrance with an important stone staircase leading upto a doorway with the family motto over the doorframe “Goya Verique… iucet”, within star vaulted ceilings where once was the reception room.  At this level, a large room with alter for private religious services, beyond another room with grand fireplace with the original kitchen dating back to the 1600′s still in tact.  There are a series of interconnecting rooms each with original features.

The upper level at second floor further rooms and also where a small theatre existed, a grand fireplace and stairs leading up to the roof terrace.  From here suggestive views over the roof tops of Ceglie Messapica and the Cathedral and Church.
