  • Impressive cathedral with relicts of Saint John 23!!
  • Visit this place if you come to Citta Alta
  • 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.
  • loved the statues and paintings on the ceilings
  • Duomo di Bergamo is an impressive cathedral in the old town.
