In a video for Architectural Digest, the publication showcases nine incredible buildings tucked into rocky cliffs.
This includes Casa Malaparte, in Capri, Italy, a building architect Simon Jacobsen described as "a beautiful thing, forged out of a brutal environment," according to Architectural Digest. The house was built in 1942 to owner Curzio Malaparte, who Mussolini once exiled to the Mediterranean.
The video also includes the Predjama Castle in Slovenia, named the largest cave castle in the world by Guinness World Records [GWR]. It "dates back to at least the 13th century, and was rebuilt in a Renaissance style in 1570," GWR explains.
