Torre Branca (Branca Tower) is an iron panoramic tower located in Parco Sempione. The top of the tower is a popular panoramic point; on a clear day, the view may encompass the Milan cityline as well as the Alps, the Apennines, and part of the Po Valley.
The tower was designed by architect Gio Ponti and inaugurated in 1933. Restructured in 2002 by the Branca liquor company, it was thus renamed Torre Branca. Since 2002 it is again open to the public.
