The Sforzesco Castle is a construction done in the renascence style wanted by the duce Francesco sforza and founded on the grounds of the Voscontea fortress.

A part of the inside of the Sforzesco castle assumes a true and real aspect of a signorile residence in 1466 when came to power gian Galeazzo Maria, and with Ludovico Sforza said Moro, the castle was amplified with an elegancy called Ponticella which looks towards the outside. Still under Ludovico Il Moro which had called artists to Milan such as Leonardo da Vinci and Bramante was accomplished the frescos of la sala dell Asse.

During the period of the Spanish domination which goes from 1500 to 1600, the Sforzesco castle was used as fortress and enriched by a fortification which took the form of a star and rended her unattacacble.
The castle which during the various dominations under went destruction and reconstruction, is now the head of the Museo del Castello, where it is possible to admire divers works, from the which we name the famous Pieta Rondanini from Michelangelo and the Madonna with the baby from Giovanni Bellini.

On the rear of the Sforzesco castle is found a splendid English garden which connects her to the Civic Arena, the Aquarium, the Art palace and the Arc of Peace. The undergrounds of the Sforzesco connects her to the prehistoric museum and the Egyptian museum.
