Castello Sforzesco, Milan: 102 reviews and 241 photos
Along with the Duomo and San Siro (football stadium), Castello Sforzesco is one of the most visited places in Milan.
The Castle was built in the latter half of the 14th Century, but was named after Francesco Sforza who (almost a century later) turned the castle into a ducal residence - a place suitable for a 'duke' to live in.
Since it was built Castello Sforzesco has been demolished and rebuilt several times and stands prominent in Milan today. It is a nice place to visit, with beautiful courtyards, good museums and the excellent Parco Sempione behind it.
