This basin was built in late XV century and used as the way to deal with 2 m. height difference between Darsena and Navigli canal system. Ships and cargos could move from one part of the city to another easy.

This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient
days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar
to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the
Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are
two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande.
The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk
with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes
in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns
