A lot of things have changed in the world since the pandemic but one thing is still constant, which is €1 (INR 90) houses of Italy. For those dreaming of Italian dreams, this is the perfect opportunity as Italian comune Castiglione di Sicilia is selling its 900 abandoned houses at just INR 90.

Settled amid the scenic Metropolitan City of Catania in Sicily, Castiglione di Sicilia on the slopes of Mount Etna is what the dreams are made of. The commune is set close to a number of Sicily’s stunning beaches. And if you are getting a chance to call this place your home, at this price, then you must not let go of the opportunity.

Mayor Antonino Camarda said that he wants to make the village alive by bringing people back. He said, “We have a huge architectural heritage to rescue, packed with history. Over time, too many people have left, leaving behind a bunch of old, picturesque houses, many even dating back to the Renaissance.”

The governor further added that they have cataloged each property based on maps and land registry data. Each building will be sold at different prices, depending on their conditions, starting from €1.

The scheme was launched in March 2021 and is the largest of its kind. For this purpose, a special task force has been set up. “We are moving along two parallel paths: reaching out to old owners who are showing great interest in getting rid of their family homes, and new buyers,” the mayor said.
