Vigevano The Essential

Let your feet take you to the foot of Sforza castle at Vigevano, where you will be able to admire the striking Piazza Ducale, considered to be highly characteristic of a Lombard Renaissance square. Its current layout dates from 1680 when the Baroque cathedral, containing a small treasury, was built, closing the fourth side. Steps lead up to Castello Visconti, built in 1345 by Galeazzo Visconti and transformed into a sumptuous residence by the Sforzas (interesting stables).
