Cappella Colleoni, Bergamo

After his soldiers destroyed one church, Bartolomeo Colleoni, commander of the Republic of Venice, ordered the construction of Cappella Colleoni on the same site in 1472. The chapel combines Romanesque, medieval, and Gothic styles with a traditional Renaissance structure. The polychrome marble designs in red, white, and black, adorn the outside and embody its extravagance. Admire the exterior, then head inside to browse the collection of 18th-century artwork. You can also visit Colleoni's tomb on the wall facing the entrance. Pictures are not allowed inside.

  • Beside Santa María Maggiore it is not worth much, is small, but is on the side and is fast. A difficult to differentiate from the outside.

  • Beautiful historical monument, very nice square. Pleasant music. It is worth visiting.
  • There is excellent equestrian statue of Venetian Condottier Bartolomeo Colleone in full suite of Milanese plate armor. Alas, visitors are not allowed to take non commercial photo even without flash light. So, no visits anymore.
  • Rich decorations of facade to study in detail of closeup look.
  • Extraordinary.
  • Different and interest architecture to admire
