Mystery Photo: Where in the world?

In the middle of a large estate with an elaborate palace, now a World Heritage Site, sits this mysterious well. Built by its millionaire owner in 1892, this eerie well was never intended to use for water but as a place for ceremonies and initiation into the secretive world of Masons. The inverted tower spirals down into the earth for 88 feet by way of a stone staircase with nine landing platforms, carefully built to follow Tarot mysticism. Inductees were blindfolded and made their way to the bottom (we were told during our visit) but what happened when they reached the compass over a Knights Templar cross, we may never know. Where is the world is it?
