Naviglio Di Bereguardo

Overview

A cycle path surrounded by the Ticino Park

The Naviglio di Bereguardo is one of the historical artificial canals dug from the late Middle Ages onwards to connect the city of Milan with the large water basins in the area, from Lake Maggiore to Lake Como. One of the first of these was precisely the Bereguardo Canal, commissioned by Duke of Milan Francesco I Sforza connecting to the Ticino river in the province of Pavia. The canal originates in Abbiategrasso, breaking away from the Naviglio Grande with a route of approximately 19 kilometres southwards to the town of Bereguardo.

The completion of the more modern Naviglio Pavese made the Bereguardo Canal obsolete in the early 19th century. Today, what became to all intents and purposes an irrigation canal is a destination for evocative excursions in contact with nature in the Ticino Park. Here you can marvel at the small stone bridges, masonry remains of the old basins and a long, paved, easy cycle path, to be travelled in its entirety or in the most famous stretches such as the one near the Abbey of Morimondo.
