  • Those who pass from Vigevano can not possibly do not visit it! Can be accessed from several entrances and all lead to "Garden" of the Castle. In spring is surely the ideal time to go for a walk.

  • Not so much the Interior, valuable and interesting. The square is a large barren area that could be revised and arranged as deserves a place rich in history like this

  • A great place to visit, there was balloon flights in the courtyard when we where there.
  • Super beautiful!
  • It's good to know that the Visconti, the Sforza, Leonardo da Vinci and Donato Bramante have left their mark fundamental and lasting memory in the town of Vigevano, a cultural heritage which can be seen wandering through the narrow streets of the old town and the Castle Sforzesco. Inside, you can visit the Ducal stables and la Falconiera, you can climb the Tower of Bramante and also cross the road covered, a masterpiece of medieval military engineering. In short, whoever comes to Vigevano cannot fail to notice his big artistic, historic and cultural heritage. A city that deserves to be visited.

  • The Castello di Vigevano is at one with the Ducal Square that serves as a Regal entrance hall. It can be considered a small city within a city, being by extension one of the largest fortified complex in Europe. The first settlement dates back to the Lombard period (VII-X centuries), while its transformation into a mansion is due to the Visconti (notably Luchino Visconti) and in particular to Ludovico il Moro Sforza. It definitely helped artists like Bramante and Leonardo also. Between 1492 and 1494 jobs were terminated. With the end of the Sforza dynasty (1535) the Castle passed to the Spaniards and began a slow decline. In 1696 the Plenipotentiaries of the European Governments agreed to sign the peace of Westminster I declare unfit for use and when in the early 18th century it becomes home to a garrison of Austrian radical transformations begin exercise. In the mid-1800s becomes Sardinian army barracks and then Italian army and remains military headquarters until 1968.

  • Very nice. To visit. There are permanent exhibitions. The green area between the stables and Male lets make picnics and children to play and relax a then on the lawn in a day of touring.
