  • and the Cathedral where he celebrated the good Pope when he was Bishop of bergamo beautiful Cathedral from the artistic point of view to visit for a break of silence in the chapel of the Holy Sacrament

  • As one of the must-see if you visit Bergamo, perhaps not it seems very interesting because you can not help but compare it to the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. This last is a sublime beauty on the outside and more still in its interior and dwarfs rightly to the Cathedral. While its exterior is perhaps within the architectural ensemble of the square the smaller Majesty, inside well worth it, although its neighbour also far surpasses it. They are both, side by side, and I advise you to visit them and enjoy both. The two will you like.

  • A beautiful Cathedral in the heart of the city, for those who love history, culture and Antiquities. Truly a treasure of Bergamo

  • Unlike the Duomo, the Baptistry is bald and essential internally in their architecture, whose decoration is entrusted primarily to external columns of the Lantern.

  • Beautiful! Original bas-reliefs, frescoes, a marvel in the heart of the old town.

  • Beautiful monument that usually remains mostly closed. Before this placement on the square was inside the basilica. The current neo-Gothic reconstruction are original statues of the virtues in the external niches and the statue of St. John the Baptist within.
