Although mainly known for its industrial fabric, Gallarate boasts a long history dating back to the Celtic-Gallic era. Over the centuries it has been enriched with important monuments and precious examples of architecture, such as the Romanesque church of San Pietro or the basilica of Santa Maria Assunta, whose nineteenth-century structure is flanked by a fine Renaissance bell tower.

Gallarate also offers interesting proposals for lovers of twentieth-century art with the MAGA, Gallarate Art Museum, which regularly offers events and exhibitions. In short, it is an ideal town for those who love cultural dynamism and, for those who don't want to miss out on any of its opportunities, nothing better than one of our fascinating attics in the historic buildings of the center.
