  • The Basilica is very cute inside and out. At night, very nicely lit. I believe that it is worthwhile to go inside to see her charm;-)

  • We drove up to this church with the intention of seeing the lot but we didn't imagine that inside there were so many artwork. The building dates back to the first centuries of the Christian era and got its name from the column placed in a corner of the churchyard. About ten meters high, it indicates the place where he suffered martyrdom Sant'Alessandro, patron of the city. Collapsed in the 15th century, the Church was rebuilt in the mid-1400 and remodeled several times. The current structure has taken shape in the early XVIII century. The Interior is on the Latin cross plan, with a nave with eight side chapels and a short transept surmounted by a round dome. The high altar is the work of g. Quarenghi. The Church is also important because, in the chapels and three sacristies, preserves many works of remarkable artists and just to name a few: Leandro Bassano, Antonio Balestra, Zucco, G.B. Bassano, Romanino, Lorenzo Lotto, Giovanni Paolo Cavagna; a real Museum. Not to be missed!

  • Basilica of St. Alexander is on the same street near via Garibaldi, in the heart of the so-called lower town. White Basilica, built in the classical style. It is dedicated to the martyr Alexander, whose history is related to Bergamo. Inside the Church is authority.

  • 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.

  • Nice basilica housing the relics of the patron saint of Bergamo s. Alessandro. Rich in precious works of art. Worth a visit.
