The place was the seat of the kings of Lombardy. THe sprawling gronds are impressive. But what immpressed as the most was the architecture. All buildings (churches, towers etc) were built of kiln fired thin red bricks. There is not uch stone to be quarried in Lombardy, hence the bricks. Also the restoration housed a great Renoir exhibtion at the time of our visit.
