Protected by the Adda on two sides, it had a 42m high square tower on the third one. Its fortified bridge (see Trezzo sull'Adda Bridge) was 72m long, the longest bridge span for several centuries, built on three different levels, passing 25m over the waters.Due to its strategic position, the castle was contested first by Emperor Frederick Barbarossa and Milan, in the 12th century, and later by the Visconti and the Torriani families.

It was commissioned by Bernabò Visconti, who was later imprisoned there until his death.When using our Italy tour planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
