Bellinzona
Castelgrande (2)

The castle has had different names throughout history. Until 1500 it was disputed between the Alpine states of the Swiss Confederation and the northern states of present-day Italy. In 1503 it fell into the hands of Uri, Schwyz and Nidwalden, who renamed it Uri Castle. Later it was also called St Michael's Castle.
