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.

  • The Colleoni Chapel is perhaps the most majestic of Bergamo. Its façade, in Renaissance style, is decorated with red and white marble; the Interior is rich in works of art: the equestrian statue of the condottiere Bartolomeo Colleoni, Bergamo the sarcophagi carved in marble throughout, the tomb of his daughter Medea, carved wood benches. Even the least passionate genre once inside and easy to feel enveloped by this concentrate of art

  • If you visit Bergamo high, a visit to the Colleoni Chapel is a must. Well preserved from the outside, the inside is simply wonderful.

  • 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.
  • Different and interest architecture to admire
  • Beatiful.
  • Visit this place if you visit Citta Alta
