  • We must now consider that this is not a stately Castle but essentially a military fortress defensive. Locals then are empty and very basic. Interesting locals created inside of 4 towers and suggestive the walkway between the battlements. The Castle also has a deep moat and drawbridges well preserved. Less interesting archaeological museum. The whole thing could be better exploited if there was any more funding.

  • History of the rock that the Guide pointed out make me think at that time, the differences between social classes difficulties of the life, besides the landscape seen from the walls, like all Soncino who all panels visible in front of monuments-churches etc. that explain the the place is worth visiting for young and old.

  • Trip out of Milan ideal for an afternoon of spring or autumn: a good walk, a little culture and maybe a nice ice cream. Site maintained in good repair, visit non-committal. With the ticket of the fortress you can visit also other 3 churches: santa maria delle grazie, santa maria assunta, san giacomo apostolo.

  • Very beautiful site. Incredible view. The whole town of Soncino is very pleasant.
  • A very interesting and historical place in a small, and unexpected town. Nice way to spend an afternoon followed by relaxing in the nearby park.
  • Beautiful castle and landscape. I hope Italy preserves this beautiful part of their culture and history.
  • Ladyhawke!
  • Very nice and impressive fortress from outside, very photogenic. Pity that inside is almost bare. Beautiful view of the town of Soncino surroundings from the round tower. Tickets cost 5 euros and also allows you to visit the small Museum of printing. Overall the village deserves a visit.
