Sforzesco Castle in Milan

One of the most interesting and visited cities in the world is Milan , which offers a great variety of tourism to all those who decide to dare to get to know it. There you can see spectacular monuments that reflect the history of a country that has greatly influenced the entire world. One of its great attractions is the Sforzesco Castle , which was once the seat and residence of the Duchy of Milan, as well as one of the great European palaces.

It is in the old part of the city, so it is very easy to find it even if you are not looking for it. Inside it has a spectacular park, the Sempione Park. Its construction began in the 14th century and it was rebuilt several times over time. It suffered serious damage in the bombings of 1943 during the Second World War but they completely rebuilt it and it seems that it has not suffered any of that. It is of invaluable architectural interest.

In this castle you can currently find several of the most important museums in the city, which is an authentic experience when visiting the best art collections in one place. The museums that are here are the Museum of Ancient Art , the Museum of Furniture, the Museum of Musical Instruments and the Collection of Applied Arts, the Achille Bertarelli’s collection and two sections of the Archaeological Museum (that of Egypt and that of Prehistory).

You can also enjoy a visit to the Pinacoteca del Castello Sforzesco , in which there is a spectacular collection of art that includes pieces such as the Madonna by Andrea Mantegna Trivulzio, the Piedad Rondanini, the manuscript of Leonardo da Vinci (Codex Trivulzianus) or the last sculpture made by Michelangelo.
