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.

  • Richly ornamented, lots of marble coverings of different colors. Not big. Right next to the basilica.  more »
  • Going to Bergamo, it is right to visit it. Airy, impressive as the cathedrals of other cities. There is nothing particularly striking.

  • 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.
