  • Royal Cathedral, well decorated, with various sculptures and works of art. Be sure to visit in Bergamo.

  • I'm not a fan of visiting churches, so probably I didn't appreciate it as much as I should have. It's free, near other attractions and even enjoyed visiting it. 
  • Piazza vecchia has an atmosphere that few squares I can give. Nestled in the upper town is great go up the main street and with surprise find her sights on the left.

  • 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.
