Cremona: Sforza Castle (Castello) in Soncino - Main gate

The Rocca of Soncino (a small town in the province of Cremona) is a typical medieval fortress of the 15th century. It has four towers and under one of them there is a "secret" passage to escape in the countryside. Built in 1473-1475 by the Sforza, the noble family who ruled Milan after the Visconti, it was sieged by the French army in 1522. The 360 photo shows the main gate with the drawbridge.
