There are rumors that tech billionaire Elon Musk bought a 13th-century Italian castle.
The Castello di Bibbiano, near Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO heritage site, in Tuscany, Italy, was reportedly purchased by Musk in 2022.
The castle includes moats around its main building, as well as a huge secondary residence with dozens of rooms, a well, outbuildings, stables and cypresses.
Pictures show the property surrounded by bricks and tiles, suggesting it may be undergoing renovations.
Currently open to the public, a tourist board explains the history of the castle dating back to the 13th century.

The property is also close to the ‘Castiglion del Bosco’, named the World’s Best Hotel by Travel + Leisure Magazine in 2022, and where Elon Musk once stayed in 2021.
Musk “could have grasped the beauty of the village during his stay in Castiglion del Bosco,” one article suggested.
Last week, Musk hinted that his confrontation with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg would take place at the Colosseum in Rome.
The owner of X – formerly known as Twitter – tweeted Friday morning that a location had been agreed upon after previously tweeting “Gladiator” alongside two sword emojis.
“The fight will be managed by my and Zuck’s foundations (not the UFC),” the Tesla mogul tweeted.
‘Livestream will be on this platform and Meta. Everything in the camera frame will be ancient Rome, so nothing modern at all.
“I spoke to the Prime Minister of Italy and the Minister of Culture. They agreed on an epic venue.
