Cassinetta still beholds its aspect of an oasis of tranquility at the margin of the metropolitan area, thanks to its fascinating 18th century mansions built by Milanese patricians.
Along the Naviglio we see the mansions Beolco Negri (City Hall), villa Negri, villa Visconti Castiglione Maineri, villa Krentzlin, and villa Castiglioni Nai Bossi . Along the road to Corbetta in the Bardena district, we find the villa Bodio Parravicini Bottiglia. Not far from the Naviglio, in the Lugagnano zone are situated the villas Mörlin-Visconti, Eusebio, Casa Mantegazza Macinaghi, the neo classical villa Trivulzio as well as the villa Birago Clari Monzini.
