Three great castles – swissinfo

Bellinzona’s castles are considered amongst the finest examples of medieval fortification architecture in Switzerland, hence their designation as a Unesco World Heritage site. The fortifications were built principally by the Dukes of Milan in the 15th century to hold back the warlike Swiss. (Julie Hunt, swissinfo.ch)
