Crespi d'Adda, Capriate San Gervasio

4.3
#2 of 7 in Things to do in Capriate San Gervasio
Savor the history of Crespi d'Adda, a World Heritage-listed "company town" that is still functioning--although its future is unclear. Company towns were developed in the 19th and 20th centuries in North America and Europe to satisfy the needs of industrial workers--nearly all jobs and facilities were provided by a singular company. While the historical settlement still thrives, changing economic and social conditions threaten its existence. Today's residents are mostly descendants of the original workers, but keep an eye out for the textile factory and the strikingly red Crespis Castle.

  • The first time I went I was fascinated. Whenever I can I jump. I like the walk, history and what it conveys. The various buildings, styles, monuments and the beautiful park where children can play. The information centre then you can buy the Guide and the various forms of cotton .... I love seeing these things and can't wait the best time to pay a visit to this village

  • Has the feel of an abandoned village. The visit merely walk on two village streets with houses of factory workers and managers of the Charity and the road on which the factory. The former home of the Crespi family the of can be seen only from a distance. A shame that this site is a UNESCO World Heritage site but then it is not really usable by mankind. It would be really desirable that the new ownership makes it usable and accessible, so how we can make the Manor House

  • Don't miss this point. You can really have an excellent overview of all village, with an excellent panorama if sky is clear!
  • Small town unesco world heritage, the uniqueness of this place lies in its history and its creator. This small village saw itself seems abandoned and uncared for, but to appreciate its heritage is necessary unless essential a visit with the Guide (cost €5) at the end of the explanation you look through different eyes this place feeling admiration for the Crespi family. Employers like them would face value nowadays unless benefactors of humanity in our time has vanished almost entirely.

  • Curious place for its history. It is advisable if you can not access the guided views that teach inside take it calmly and inform yourself before you go for what it was, how it worked, etc... Crespi d'Adda is a patrimony of humanity, and all the complex is very well preserved. It also has a viewpoint from one end next to the House of the pastor and doctor at the top of the small hill bordering the town. Access to it in certain period is restricted to vehicles. In winter it is a very quiet and can be a quick tour to get the idea. Who can be a guided views.
