Visconti Castle

This castle, named after the family that ruled Milan from the 13C-15C, showcases the collections of the Municipal and Archaeological Museum. With the exception of the beautiful collection of Roman glassware, they are of minor interest. One room is devoted to the Locarno Pact (1925), signed by the European powers.
