Naviglio Grande

Nav_GR

The Naviglio Grande is a navigable canal which starts where it draws water from the Ticino in the district of  Lonate Pozzolo known as Tornavento and ends in the dock Darsena di Porta Ticinese in Milan. It is 49.9 km long with a total drop of 34 metres and a variable width of around 20 metres at the inlet which narrows to around 15 metres in the stretch from Abbiategrasso to Corsico until it reaches 12 metres in Milan. It was designed at the time to be an irrigation as well as navigation canal, and over the years these joint roles have led the Naviglio Grande to play a major part in local history.
