(A) Starting from the INFOPOINT, exiting on via Matteotti on the left, go up the bridge of the steps.

B) Bridge of the steps

you are surrounded by a particular landscape made in the distance to the south by the view of the Cassinetta bridge and, on fine days, by the Monte Rosa massif that stands out to the north. Around a unique set of noble residences starting from the two faces: Villa Gaia and Palazzo Archinto. On the other bank of the Naviglio you can admire Villa Dugnani.

C) "the Mudel"

Once off the bridge, turning right and walking along a stretch of towpath you can admire from the other side of the Naviglio: the grandeur of Villa Gaia and its park and then the vastness of the park of Villa Gromo Ternengo. This leads to villa Bassana with the Soncina canal running in front of it. A little further on it is possible to see the divider, “the mudel”, where the Soncina canal gives part of its waters to the Negri cable.

Here you pass by the monument to the Resistance, a work created by the artist Colli, while on the other side of the square you can see the tombstone of the fallen of the 21st of July, to which the square is dedicated. The Parish Church stands out imposingly in front, while in the background on the right we have the small oratory of S. Majolo.
