San Pellegrino: The Remains of the Grand Hotel


A relic of the heyday of San Pellegrino, the Grand Hotel was (quite literally) a watering place for the wealthy, in the early 1900s when health spas with natural mineral springs were all the rage. The hotel is an Art Nouveau treasure, built in 1905, but now sadly going to ruin, its fixtures gradually being auctioned off (as shown in the sign above).

If I had a few million euros, I’d buy this poor old hulk and restore it.
