  • The construction of the Castle, which was commissioned by the Visconti family, began in 1361, with all subsequent changes and additions. In the mid 1700 the Castle lost its defensive significance and was used first by the Savoy as a venue for tax offices and for the judiciary and subsequently by the French as the seat of the Court and prison. Only in 1986 the prison was closed down and moved elsewhere. Recent restorations have been able to unearth and save some frescoes of great value, such as a wonderful landscape ascribed to Bramantino. Half of the Castle, the part that housed the prisons, has yet to be completely recovered. In the North Wing, thanks to the efforts from the previous city administration, in collaboration with the Superintendence of cultural heritage, in the courtyard, you can host various events and organize in the rooms on the upper floor shows and conventions. The massive and severe construction in red brick, typical of the buildings of the Oltrepò, is a rectangular plan, with four corner towers. In the square outside there is a garden with benches, while the other sides sides are surrounded by rows of trees and walkways. At present the castle is only open during exhibitions and events.

  • Beautiful Visconti Castle, located in the central position in Pavia! This mediaval castle (1360) is a must see when visiting Pavia! I had a chance to visit it during the little beer festival so the atmosphere was really great! We enjoyed nice music and great local food and beers, while enjoying magnificent interior courtyard of the castle! Recommended!
