Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's third wedding is sure to be their most spectacular!

After a Vegas "practice wedding" in April and a legal ceremony in Santa Barbara earlier this month, The Kardashians star, 43, and the drummer, 46, are saying 'I do' once again in Italy. The couple chose Castello Brown, a 16th century castle in the seaside town of Portofino, as their reception venue, while they chose L'Olivetta, a villa owned by Dolce & Gabbana, as the ceremony site.

Located on the coast of northern Italy just southeast of the city of Genoa, Portofino is certainly a picture perfect wedding location. Not only does the castle boast breathtaking views of Portofino bay and the Mediterranean Sea, it's also rich in history.

Castello Brown was a military stronghold dating all the way back to 1425, according to the venue's website. In the eighteenth century, the castle fell under French rule, and Napoleon Bonaparte even guarded the structure with his troops in an effort to ward off British ships passing through.

The castle gets its name from English Consul Montague Yeats Brown who refurbished it into a private residence in the nineteenth century. It has been owned by the Municipality of Portofino since 1961.

These days, the Castello is a private event space that can be rented for weddings and other gatherings, art shows and culinary events. According to the "Rates" page on their site, it costs between 3,500 and 5,000 Euros (about $3,700-$5,300) to rent the castle for a day between April and September, depending on the day of the week.
