Crespi d’Adda, UNESCO Site near Bergamo

@ | 17 February 2016

Time has stopped here in Crespi d’Adda, a nineteenth century industrial city created by the Crespi family around their cotton mill. Enter in to the complex, strolling along the houses neatly ordered, surrounded by English courtyards. They were created for the workers here as the ideal village, all of which are still inhabited! It’s a fantastic place to enjoy the silence and industrial archaeology. Did we mention there’s also a cemetery in pre-Columbian style. Just outside, you’ll find pristine nature and the Adda River. The village of Crespi d’Adda was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 as one of the most well-conserved industrial villages in the world. Step back in time and be sure to visit Crespi d’Adda while on a trip to Bergamo!
