Ancient Waldensian Bible School - for sale

An ancient Waldensian Bible school, where pre-Reformation Bible teachers, known as 'barbes', taught doctrine to disciples to take it out to wider  Europe, is high above Angrogna valley, off Val Pellice where Torre Pellice is situated, in the foothills of the Piedmontese Alps. Torre Pellice is about 40 minutes west from Turin by car.

The school is currently for sale - for 23,000 euros. It's an intentional hideaway, so no roads lead there and there is no power.  Visitors must walk half an hour up ancient Waldensian paths.  However it has stables, so the Waldensians used to get around on horseback.  It has an impregnable position and lovely views and reminds me of an Essene community.
