Torretta Viscontea

Where
Torretta Viscontea, Monza

Designed by architect Luigi Canonica, the Torretta Viscontea was actually planned by his successor Giacomo Tazzini, who conceived it as a mock castle with an adjoining tower.

Built using recycled materials, it is a medieval-style building with decorations that can be traced back to 19th-century neo-Gothic architecture. It has a rectangular plan on two floors, completed by a tower with a belvedere enriched by a bas-relief depicting hunting scenes and decorated with the Visconti coat of arms.

The Torretta is the subject of a large number of historical photos and prints, and is located near the neo-Gothic walls that were inspired by the ancient city walls in the form of ruins in the architectural style in vogue at the time. It is a worthy conclusion to our cultural cycling itinerary to discover the hidden treasures of Monza Park
