Brera's tight cobbled streets and ancient buildings are a reminder that Milan wasn't always a modern metropolis. At the heart of the neighbourhood is the 17th-century Palazzo di Brera, originally a Jesuit college, though occupied by the city's famous Fine Art Academy since 1776. Around it are studios, galleries and some of the city's most fashionable restaurants. To the west, the grand Castello Sforzesco bookends the city's largest public park, Parco Sempione.
