Where Carate Brianza (Monza e della Brianza)
Carate Brianza is a town and comune in the province of Monza and Brianza. The city lies at an elevation ranging from 230 to 300 metres (750 to 980 ft) above sea level, on the Lambro river. History The history of Carate Brianza dates back to the Stone Age, as shown by a discovery made of carved rocks that are now preserved in the Archaeological Museum of Milan. The Lombard Queen Theodolinda built in this town a tower, which later was turned into the bell tower for the main church. After the 10th century, a wall was built around the town to protect it from barbarian attacks. The Middle Ages was characterized by the spreading of the Christianity, with the construction of five churches and a hospital. During the 19th century jurist and philosopher Gian Domenico Romagnosi lived in Carate. Main sights Sights include the "Villa Cusani Confalonieri", originally built as a castle and that became municipal property when the family was told to leave in the 1970s. Now you can find there a park and the public library. The church of Sant' Ambrogio e Simpliciano, built in the 19th century, is situated in the centre of the town, near the statue of Sant'Anatalone, which has been restored recently. The most important monument is the Basilica of San Pietro and San Paolo in Agliate (it), built in Romanesque style.
