In the main square, the heart of the town, the Castle stands proud and timeless. It began construction in 1476, on the orders of Galeazzo Maria Sforza, entrusting the task to two military architects, Ferrari and Mainerio, who designed a building that mark the transition from the traditional feudal fortified residence, which also had functions housing units in addition to war, a veritable fortress with eminently military functions. Constructing a quadrangular plan, with crenellated walls, of over 3 meters thick, has a tower not very high for each corner and two other towers in the middle of the longer sides to the South and North. The Central Towers incorporate the significant ports of entry with their posterns fitted with drawbridges and ravelins. The building is massive and imposing. A perimeter ditch now dried up around the Castle. Among the various rooms stand out for their beauty: the rose room, the Sala degli Stucchi and Escutcheons which are decorated with paintings and frescoes on the walls. In 1970 the municipality starts the acquisition of some parts of the Castle extending it later to other (However, there are still parts of private property) and takes those who neglect renovation made it indispensable. The castle is reborn in all its beauty. The grandeur of the building, the State of conservation and the uniformity of the Castle Galliate make it one of the most important examples of these residences. Currently the building apart from the Council Chamber is a large public library, which has a section for children and one for adults and the ability ' to consult journals. In cinemas towards the square there is a permanent exhibition that illustrates the WINS and the life of the motor racing champion, born in Galliate, Achille Varzi. Many other cultural and artistic activities and initiatives include housed temporarily. The inner courtyard is home to year-round events: Christmas markets, fairs, and events of all kinds. We recommend visiting the city and the castle in the period 17-24 September, on the occasion of the commemoration of the "donation of the relics of the holy martyrs of Galliate right and Aurelius".

Reach you in the Castle Square, we were impressed by the good state of preservation of the whole brick structure. A moat is present all along the perimeter. The architectural complex has a Wishbone shape, has battlements around. Four corners rise towers not too high compared to the rest of the building. The main gates of the Fort are in the North and South sides. The entrances were closed There troneremo soon.
A landmark of the city of Milan. This famous castle stands out by its history and architecture.
Castle in excellent condition. The West Wing is used as a public library, a must see. In the yards of the East Wing frequent flea markets and exhibitions.
Help is not coming to the appointment. So the visit could not be run.
