  • On every occasion in Bergamo I like to come back to this Church where meditation is really total and where prayer comes unbidden.

  • At the beginning of the Central viale Papa Giovanni a church from the great dome, visible and recognizable from Bergamo alta. Well worth a visit.

  • The lower church, Santa Maria golden statue on the dome. The Church originated as a monastery and there is information about it already from the beginning of the 15th century. Can the Italians build, ancient culture. Within the Church is necessarily stand under the dome, look and the dome itself. A beautiful church, architecture, outside and inside.

  • Where now stands the Church of s. Maria Immacolata delle Grazie was the Church of the Franciscan Monastery founded by St. Bernardino in 1422 as the seal of the Holy peace had operated between rival political factions. The redevelopment of downtown operated in the mid-19th century to allow the opening of the Boulevard that leads to the station led to the demolition of the old church; However the ancient complex cherishes the cloister (visits from Viale Papa Giovanni XXIII, 13) and many of the artworks that now adorn the new Church: the miraculous fresco of the Holy Jesus trasfuguratosi in 1608 and now revered on the precious wooden altar by the Caniana family (1761), the Madonna and Saints by Giambettino Cignaroli (1752), the Madonna and Saints by Giampaolo Cavagna (1619), the Madonna and San Diego by Enea Salmeggia (1594)the cycle of frescoes by Jacopino Scipioni depicting the life of St. Francis (1507) and other 15th-century frescoes. The current system of the Church, built between 1857 and 1875 a Greek cross in neoclassical style by the Architect Antonio Prey, which managed to harmonise the volumes of the new church with buildings still in situ, thus making the monumental complex of the graces the heart of the city. The pictorial decoration of the new Church, which culminates in the glory of Mary (1865-68) painted in the dome, you must to Henry dark, Director of the school of painting at the Accademia Carrara, and his students.
