Lodi boasts a rich history, this city used to be surrounded by defensive walls, plus palaces and strongholds built on behalf of Holy Roman Emperor Frederick I.

The Visconti Castle, for example takes its name from the notorious and powerful Milanese family, who added four towers and additional fortifications to it. It became a military outpost under Austrian rule.
