Milan: Sforza Castle - Castello Sforzesco - S/W gate and wall
Milan

The "Castello Sforzesco", Sforza' Castle, is one of the most important monuments in Milan. Built by the Viscontis in the middle of 14th centry with a defensive scope, it was then variously reworked in particular in 15th century by order of Francesco Sforza and Ludovico il Moro. The castle became so one of the most important courts in Europe, hosting top artists like Bramante and Leonardo da Vinci. In the 360 photo is the S/W wall with the round tower and the "Porta dello Spirito Santo", the Gate of Holy Spirit.
