The floor of the hall consists of colored tile that has survived for hundreds of years. On both sides of the hall are towering stone pillars and beautiful stained-glass windows, most featuring sections of the story of Jesus. There are three circular lattice windows on the east side of the church, generally considered the finest windows in the entire church.
Sforza Castle
4.6/5
363 Reviews
Castle
Sforza Castle was the defending power of Milan in the 14th and 15th centuries. Acting as one of the grandest citadels in Europe, it’s almost hard to believe this great structure now holds collections of art and often serves as the venue for weddings. While it suffered much during World War II, post-war reconstruction helped transform it into the museum it is today, where works from both Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci can be found within.

It uses a combination of innovative bold oil paintings and tempera paintings to create a unique Perspective effect.

Trip Moments

Traveling in Milan, I suddenly remembered Lake Como. Take a double-decker train, 50 kilometers away, it takes an hour to arrive. This ice lake located under the Alps is a famous resort in Milan with a lake length of 31 kilometers and a width of 5 kilometers. Lakeside yachts such as forests, surrounded by mountains on three sides, mostly cliffs, scattered villas, churches, stone red brick buildings, red top towers, blue sky, pigeons flying freely. It is said that most of the upper Europeans have private holiday villas in Lake Como. We walked out of the old train station and walked along the lakeside park, looking out over the lake for cruises. There are three people in the park who are squatting on the sorghum, and they are entertaining themselves and win the applause of the onlookers. Also, don't forget to buy a cup of delicious ice cream at a roadside shop, people on the open-air cafe, almost one hand: that is the standard for Italian travel. Come Lake is also the location of the movie "Star Wars", the famous director Lucas will sequel to the clone attack, the scene where Skywalker Anakin and Amidala fell in love at first sight. The beautiful lakes and mountains make the audience a wonderland. We look at the towering hilltops of the lake and there are cable cars that carry tourists up the hill along steep hillsides. Looking along the lakeshore to the hillside, a slate path extends upwards. There are various specialty shops on both sides of the road. Cafes, restaurants, hotels, and craft shops are under the sparkling reflections, such as dreamlike beauty. Twilight is approaching, and then take the train back to Milan, the beauty of Lake Como, always feels unfinished.

If you want to feel the classics of the bones and the fashion of Milan, then go to the promenade of Emanuele II. It is not important whether you are picking up your hands. It is important that you dont need to speak through words. among them. Close to the main church of Dumo, the other end is the Scala Theatre, so the flow of people and fame can be described as a big explosion, a bunch of luxury goods inside... hurriedly passed... The name of the gallery comes from the first king after the reunification of Italy. It is located in the prominent position on the north side of the Piazza Duomo in Milan and connects to Scala Square. The northern exit of the arcade is directly accessible, to the Da Vinci Square and La Scala Opera House, and to the south exit to Milan Cathedral. Of course, the most eye-catching is that there are many top luxury fashion shops on both sides of the glass dome arcade. There are also many cafes, restaurants, bookstores and burger shops. I am afraid that no one will not be surprised when they are under the covers. The top corridors converge in the central octagonal space, where art and fashion blend together, standing here looking down at the bull mosaics, which are said to be good for luck (Figure 6). The light is projected on this round glass roof, reflecting the relief on the wall and the painted bricks on the ground. The light and the shadows are combined, the extra attention is noticeable, the height is high enough, and the golden light shines. Give a feeling of grandeur. The heel of the right foot is stepping on the genital part of the bull, and turning three times in a clockwise direction, you can make a wish and bless your heart. It is impossible to avoid it.
