  • If you arrive in Bergamo for a cultural tour you should not miss a visit to this Cathedral dedicated to Saint Alexander

  • It is adjacent to the Basilica which she is huge, it has quickly made the turn because this duomo is really small and it is forbidden to take a picture, a sitter we call to order at the same time she manages little shop of remembrance of the Church :), this duomo is part of this skewer duomo-basilica - Chapel and churches joined a few metres each and others on the same place! which is atypical that it would confuse them between them! Visit this wonder but also the others because they are wonderful pieces of history!

  • Visit this place if you come to Citta Alta
  • Impressive cathedral with relicts of Saint John 23!!
  • loved the statues and paintings on the ceilings
  • Less wonderful than basilica di santa next door. But if you have a look at the side chapel ceiling its got a lovley painting of Jesus in the clouds.
  • Duomo di Bergamo is an impressive cathedral in the old town.
