In the heart of Milan, Sforzesco Castle is an imposing fortress built by the powerful Sforza family in the 15th century. Surrounded by a moat, the turreted castle is a huge complex that houses several museums dedicated to the fascinating, yet often overlooked, history of the city.

While rival Florence is often credited with being the cradle of the Renaissance, it is fair to say the great artists were nurtured in Milan. At Sforzesco Castle, Leonardo da Vinci was commissioned to decorate several rooms as well as famous Last Supper painting found at nearby Santa Maria delle Grazie. You can see his entrancing frescoes in the Sala delle Asse and then bask in the beauty of Michelangelo’s last sculpture known as the Rondanini Pietà.

Sforzesco Castle is in central Milan surrounded by beautiful Parco Sempione. It is a must-see stop for history and art lovers visiting northern Italy.
