We visited the village in the early Saturday morning, so there were no other tourists or visitors, just locals going about their morning routine. The village is beautiful with lots of industrial buildings from an old age, when they were actually made to look beautiful along the functionality. Makes for a really lovely walk.

Fascinating UNESCO world heritage site, great town for walking and educational excursion. Original worker housing with current residents living there today, try not to gawk at this beautiful neighborhood. Lovely cemetery just outside of center worth a visit.

You might not know it, but about 40 km from Milan there is a UNESCO world heritage village. This village is an unspoilt example of architectural history that goes back to the dawning of the industrial civilization.
Crespi D'Adda was created to house the workers and management who worked in the village cotton mill and it is a complete testimony to the phenomenon of the 19th century called workers' villages.
NOTE: The village is an inhabited place, you can join one of many guided tours through the areas but you cannot go inside the patronal house and the factory. Things to see in a day:
A walk along the streets of Crespi.
A boat trip on the river Adda, on foot or by bike in the steps of Leonardo da Vinci to the places that inspired the background of the "Virgin of the Rocks".
Central Taccani and the castle of Trezzo sull'Adda.

You should visit this UNESCO heritage site with a guide or at least learn the story before you go there. Otherwise you'll be disappointed. The castle and the big old factory (which is the reason why this city is built) is closed. We've been told neither UNESCO nor the government is properly funding for the promotion and restoration of the city. It worths visiting just for this reason. Don't forget to have a cup of coffee and delicious cookies in one of the cafes before leaving.
