    This basilica is a jewel look it it it where you look. The altar is beautiful, the ceiling with its separate as individual paintings gives a very elegant touch. Visit highly recommended

    A typical Italian church, but in the sacristy hangs prominently displayed painting by Lorenzo Lotto. It differs from its altar works as a composition and performance

    Not a particular art expert and don't know so if the Church is of special value: at a guess is not the treasure trove of priceless treasures. The Church must be visited because it is the spiritual heart of old Bergamo low that's still there, with the feast of Sant'Alessandro (patron of the city) in September and a moving celebration of the pardon of Assisi in August. The pardon of Assisi could constitute an opportunity to visit the Church and, why not, to participate in the rites and obtain the indulgence (you never know, better get prepared for the afterlife).

  • Closed.
  • Yeah
  • One of the peculiarities of this church: the two organs Serassi. Places on both sides of the Church but controlled from a single console. The transmission of commands to the secondary MECHANICAL organs are assolutamentd. The tsmpo of constructing an absolute novelty. And a successful challenge by the Serassi toward its more aggressive competitors.
