  • I visited this church both with my parents and my grandparents, it’s always nice to see a church like this among shops and restaurants. There are many interesting paintings and statues!

  • Beautiful church with the tomb of Santa Lucia
  • Beautiful.
  • Shame, that made baroque of romanesque
  • The Madonna dello Spasimo church in Bergamo, also called Santa Lucia is a small church among the commercial district. Construction began in 1764 on the ruins of an earlier church from 1592. The interior has one elongated nave with a projection of pillars, between which side altars are placed. Interesting story about Santa Lucia makes the church visited by children. They write letters asking for gifts, and leave them next to the saint to get them on December 13.
  • Historic church in the center of Bergamo, beautiful, and with an important spiritual guide. In this church the children, according to an ancient custom, bring (late November, early December) a letter to Saint Lucia, to ask for gifts for December 13, the day of her feast. However it is a church of great interest for its history and its artistic works. I recommend a visit.
