Visconteo Castle of Turbigo
The thirteenth century castle is a part, along with that of Legnano, of the Visconti background. The structure which has a square floor plan is built from river pebbles, squares of stone and bricks. Constructed on an alluvial hill, it dominates Ticino and the suburb beneath, offering a truly striking view. It is surrounded by a vast park.

In order to access the Castello one must either climb the steep via della Chiesa, or the scenic steps which take you from via Vittorio Veneto directly to the terracing.
The castle, which was once a strategic guard post for the Visconti, is currently a private residence and can be viewed only from the outside.
