Cattedrale (Duomo) di Bergamo e Battistero, Bergamo

A living church in which worshippers still gather every day for mass, Cattedrale (Duomo) di Bergamo e Battistero is the central cathedral of Bergamo. It was rebuilt several times since the ninth century, with major renovations undertaken in 1689 and 1889. Designed in the shape of a Latin cross with a single nave, the cathedral's interior contains a number of paintings by high-Renaissance artists such as Giovanni Battista Moroni, Giovanni Cariani, and Giovanni Battista Tiepolo. Just beside the church is the octagonal baptistry, with bas-relief episodes of the life of Christ and a statue of John the Baptist.

  • As usual are two different buildings the Battistero though it is small it is worth entering. It has several interesting details. Battery and San Juan Bautista, sculptures of the dome of the duomo, white façade and also its interior with gold accents. We can find in one of the rooms the statue and some relics of Juan XXIII
