Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.
Sforza Castle in Milan
Address: Piazza Castello, 20121 Milano MI, Italy
One of the places that my family and I visited last year while in Milan was the Sforza Castle. It is a gorgeous citadel with quite a number of museums inside. Hence, I am dividing this post into several parts. This one would just primarily feature the facade or the citadel itself.
According to this Wikipedia source:
It was built in the 15th century by Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan, on the remnants of a 14th-century fortification.
Still from the same Wikipedia source:
Later renovated and enlarged, in the 16th and 17th centuries it was one of the largest citadels in Europe. Extensively rebuilt by Luca Beltrami in 1891–1905, it now houses several of the city’s museums and art collections.

That’s your fairy tale. This is your castle.
Now move in. Build a home. Build a house. Build a safety around things you love.
It’s yours if you make it so.
Welcome home, sweet girl, it will be all be fine.
