Castello Sforzesco Jan 30, 2017
Castello Sforzesco is a large brick castle that has undergone many constructions and continued buildings over the last 700 plus years. Originally developed as a fortress to defend the city in the late 1300's it was significantly rebuilt by Frances Sforza around 1450. Sforza was the Duke of Milan and used the castle not only to fend off attacks from Venice but also as his private residence. Over the succeeding years the fortress was enlarged several times. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries the castello was enlarged and rebuilt by Extensively rebuilt by Luca Beltrami. Today the area hosts a wide range of facilities including many of Milan's museums. Walking through the area you need to look closely to find some of the key sites in the area.

We found the site to be very crowded on a Sunday afternoon. However everyone was pleasant which made the day more enjoyable.
