The origins of Oasi Ca’ Granda trace back to those of Milan’s ancient Ospedale Maggiore, now the City Policlinico, or General Hospital.
Founded in 1456, it was affectionately called Ca' Granda from the start, as it welcomed everyone and cared for all, especially those most in need.
Popes, nobles and commoners bestowed a great many fields and farmhouses to Ca 'Granda. These were rented to support free medical treatment and were farmed to feed patients, orphans and the poor. A unique legacy, defended over the centuries from urban settlements to preserve its original identity. The Ca 'Granda Heritage Foundation has taken care of everything since 2015, committed to enhancing the agricultural, environmental and cultural value of the heritage it has been entrusted with: 8,500 hectares of land, 100 farmhouses, three churches and an abbey, Mirasole.
