is on the banks of the Naviglio near the dockyard. Washerwomen worked at this ancient laundry service until the 1950s, cleaning the townspeople's linens in the canal. You can still see their wooden seats and cement washing slabs. You might stop for dinner next door at Ristorante El Brellin, which is in the old grocery shop that supplied the women with soaps and bleaches. The building retains the original fireplaces and wood-paneled ceilings. In this area of narrow roads and proximity to the canal, you may stumble across an interesting shop or bar.

  • One of the most characteristic of Milan to breathe air of yesteryear ... Probably too little noticed but certainly notable

  • This corner is interesting if you know the story. Not worth acrossing the city to visit, though the area of Navigli is one of the best for a night out so you'll probably pass here. 
  • I find it to be one of the most beautiful places in Milan. If you focus on the green tiled courtyards, the Brook and coverage seems to be in Provence.
