Baggio

Overview

Borgo-paese on the outskirts of Milan

It is an out-of-the-way neighborhood, considering that it is just under a dozen kilometers from Madunina. But a stop here, if you find yourself spending a few days on vacation in Milan, is highly recommended. If only to disconnect the plug from the frenzy of the center and breathe a healthy breath of "country" air while remaining within the metropolitan area.

It is Baggio, the western outskirts of the capital of Milan, a Lombard heart and multicultural soul, able to surprise you with its unexpected artistic treasures and vast green areas. Its intellectual and social fulcrum is represented by the square of streets around the Park of Baggio, inside which stands the Municipal Library, one of the largest, most active and frequented in Milan.

The cobbled streets of the historic center of the neighborhood also host a festival every year in October whose first edition is even dated 1628. Among the noble palaces of Via Ceriani you can then admire the Old Church dedicated to Sant'Apollinare whose origins are lost in the year 1000, before a few hours of relaxation among woods and ponds of the Cave Park. Maybe by munching on the typical Puccia di Baggio, a type of bread cooked on stone with the addition of milk.
