Visconteo Castle of Cusago
The rectangular building with an ancient central tower, lacks a surrounding ditch, but is equipped with a massive iron gate door. The building is considered to be one of the best samples of architectural castles in the region. Originally built on 1370 as a countryside residence of Bernab˛ Visconti. The building is nestled in a wooded terrain, ideal for hunting, and still maintains its fortress characteristics. Ludovico il Moro commissioned the structure to be transformed in to a dwelling. Filippo Maria Visconti connected the structure to Milan by a canal - that could be sailed at the time - up to the Naviglio Grande River in the region of Gaggiano.
The Castle cannot be visited.
