but is worth a visit if you go on the last Sunday of the month when the antique market is held. You can see where the women used to wash their linen on small slabs by the canal. Don't go just for this though. El Brellin (restaurant) is right there - they do a good Sunday lunch, so combined with a visit to the antique market, it makes a nice Sunday morning jaunt (LAST sunday of the month only and not in August)

This is a lovely reminder of old Milan. A well preserved village washing area surrounded by wonderful restaurants. A gem!

Where women used to wash clothes, in the water of the canal, during the nineteen Century, and part of the twentieth.

It'a a corner on one of the Navigli (old milanese channels deputy to moving goods) where women used to wash their laundry.
Good if included in a nice walk of the area. Last Sunday of the month there's a antiques market.

The place is worth more than one visit. I did not regret having a dinner there. You should also try the Gran Moscato they serve there ...
