In the wonderful Ionian Calabria, 15 minutes far from the crystal clear Ionian sea, a noble mansion with centuries of history, ideal location for cultural and social events, B&B accommodation, small ceremonies in its private chapel and much more. Built by the feudal family de Luna d’Aragona, the mansion is dates back to the XIV century. It came in possession of Lupis family – coming from Giovinazzo in Apulia and originated by the Marquises of Soragna – in XVII century, for a number of entangled marital alliances with the families of de Luna, Amato, Infusini and Manso, all extinct into Marquises Lupis. Among the relevant artistic elements are the eighteen-century monumental portal, handiwork of the school of sculpture of Serra San Bruno, the ancient library gathering more than 7.000 volume...In the wonderful Ionian Calabria, 15 minutes far from the crystal clear Ionian sea, a noble mansion with centuries of history, ideal location for cultural and social events, B&B accommodation, small ceremonies in its private chapel and much more.

The large stained glasses show the coat of arm of Lupis. Palazzo Lupis stands in the square dedicated to the Marquis Domenico Lupis Crisafi, in the historical centre, district “Castello” and enjoys a considerable environmental and scenic position. Nowadays it belongs to the foundation established by the descendants, Don Marco and Donna Silvia Lupis Macedonio Palermo di Santa Margherita.

Edificato dalla famiglia feudataria dei de Luna d'Aragona il palazzo risale al XIV secolo.
