Sforzesco Castle

Milan, Italy
4.5 / 26
The majestic Castello Sforzesco is located in the historical center of Milan. It was built as a defensive fortress in the 15th century after the seizure of power by the Sforza family. The luxurious interiors of the castle were created with the participation of Bramante and Leonardo da Vinci. By the end of the 15th century, Sforzesco became one of Italy’s richest and most luxurious ducal palaces. The castle survived the Spanish rule and supremacy of Napoleon. In the XIX century, a large-scale reconstruction was carried out.

It's a great place to gather and relax. Besides looking at some great architecture and sitting on the grass there isn't much else you can do.


Very beautiful castle in milan. There is a park beside and it's very beautiful. So many trees, benches and a shop to relax.
