Visconti Fortress, a castle full of history.
Adjacent the Duchy of Milan, on the side of Adda River, this precious building belonging to the XII century, was first the residence of the Visconti family and then of the Sforzas.
The building served as seat of political representation, center for parties and scene of major battles; this palace was also the place where Leonardo Da Vinci started to work on human portraits. The Castle is a place that transmits its history through frescoes, vaulted ceilings and large rooms restored with great care and now opened after ten years of works.
It is 30 minutes from Milan by car, 20 minutes from Bergamo and from the main airports, like Linate (MI) and Orio Al Serio (BG). You can reach it by train from Milan with a connection in Cassano D'Adda.
Thanks to the beautiful and large spaces of this building it is possible to organize any sort of event. Indeed we have an internal courtyard (1200 m2), huge frescoes rooms on the ground floor (5 rooms, from 60 m2 to 350 m2). On the second floor there are two big halls: Terrace Leonardo (315 m2) and Arazzi (220 m2). Thanks to the frescoes and the nature, technology instruments for teleconferences, internet connection and ductility of rooms, this building can lodge every kind of initiative.
