Speaking about the houses, Mayor Antonino Camarda 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 €1 homes are cottages once owned by shepherd and farming families, while the more expensive ones include palatial houses that were occupied by the middle class.

Many residents of the town were said to have migrated to Australia and South America in search of greener pastures. They didn't return and their homes fell into disrepair after many years of their absence.

According to Independent, an auction will be held to determine the new owner if many people show interest in a particular property.
