Bramante Tower

Scorcio della Torre (A. Prim.jpgThis is the symbol of Vigevano in as much as standing at the highest point of the town.

It was built in various stages starting in 1198 and was made a vantage point at the wishes of Ludovico il Moro and his wife Beatrice d’Este in 1492-1494, becoming the official entrance to the castle.
Its unusual outline was used as the model for the reconstruction of the Filerete Tower in the Sforzesco castle in Milan in the XIX century: composed of gradually smaller sections, from its battlements it offers a complete panorama over the Piazza, Castle and entire town. The bronze dome was added in 1563 in place of the original conical spire.
