  • Elegant (especially seen from below), beautiful even if it has completely lost the frescoes that decorated it externally. Only partially accessible (for a fee); climbing a hundred steps you reach the protruding terrace closed by swallow-tailed blackbirds, from which you can enjoy the view (beautiful the view of the square, otherwise, nothing special). The last floors leading to the bell cell, overlaid with a cusp, added to the Bramantesca factory in the 17th century, are not accessible.

  • The first mention of a tower in the castle area dates back to 1198. Starting in the 1400s, there were bells and a clock with wheels and gears. Ludwig the Moor at the end of the 15th century demolished part of the old tower, almost unusable and makes a new one be built. Over the centuries, maintenance work was necessary. The cusp with the copper dome was added in the 17th century. Even today the Tower punctuates the days of the Vigevanese with the chimes of the bells and is the symbol of the city and appears in the coat of arms.
