  • The exterior of the castle is beautiful and quaint. Respect other castles is not positioned in a strategic area overlooking the valleys, but it is surrounded by gardens that surely were annexed to the Castle. Too bad I saw inside.

  • Unfortunately the castle was closed to the public, and I have not been able to visit the interiors. The external appearance is nice don't say majestic and impressive as I've had better. The Interior I don't know because it was closed to the public.

  • Probably one of the nicest castle visited in Lombardy, with all the peculiarity gifted by the XIII century. For some is a castle while others name it a fortress. IMHO it is indeed a castle because of its common features such as, for example, its curtain wall, its gatehouse, not to forget its moat... My advice is to go visiting it and make up your mind :) Highly recommended!
  • On the road from Vergiate to Somma Lombardo this imposing mysterious structure suddenly appears amidst a surrounding of much more modern buildings. Couldn’t venture into greater details but.. I wish authorities would place more information around this building so that interested people could dwell deeper down into the history and marvel about the centuries gone by.
  • Good
  • A castle in the heart of the city. The guided tour shows and describes the rooms well appointed and the narrative ranges from historical facts concerning both the Visconti family, both famous people housed in the Castle, adding a touch of lightness with the tale of the curious details. The tour draws from service rooms such as the kitchen, and going up to the main floors visiting room for stay of the Lords. Frescoes, family portraits, coffered ceilings and wooden furniture in excellent condition. There are also two private collections, archaeological remains of dwelling site of Golasecca, while the other is a collection of hundreds of items "Barber" in various styles and materials.
