Cappella Colleoni, Bergamo

4.5
#6 of 23 in Historic Sites in Bergamo
Religious Site Historic Site
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.

  • Even though smaller than the Basilica next door, this is still worth a visit. Stunning building exterior from the outside. Beautiful from the inside. There is a small shop which sells religious items.  more »
  • Open at 9 o'clock, deserve a visit, the chapel was built to honor the Colleoni family, not to be confused with the Corleone mafia, there are other monuments in a wide square. outside of this square to the funicular, there are public bathrooms (€0.20) and many people do not know, in our case neither Guide and believe that are very good, the GUI Builder indicated the W.C., along outside the funicular >
