Castello Sforzesco

Visit website

Castello Sforzesco was built in 1450 by Francesco Sforza. He and his son Ludovico Sforza used it as their home. In 1526, the Spanish converted the caste into a fortress holding 1000 to 3000 men. When Italy was unified in the 19th century, it was no longer used by the military. The city of Milan took over ownership.  They restored much of the castle and have converted it into a museum.
