one of the largest squares in Europe, meticulously maintained, a must-see! Build by Sforza Milano family as country residence. Nearby Castello an absolute must-see unfortunately, like so many things in Italy, not really looked after nowadays!

A piazza that is truly the center of town. Beautifully ornate and created,with modifications throughout its history,to become an example of Rinascimento architecture.

I read that this is one of Italy's beautiful piazza and I must agree. It has plenty of shops, restaurants and architecture to keep you there for a day or two. If in Vigevano, this is a must see.

This is reputedly the best piazza in Italy. It certainly looks the part. I suggest that you have a guide or get a guide book or read up about it before visiting to appreciate the architecture and the frescoes.
