The Colleoni Chapel is next door to the Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica and, as such, you can easily make the quick visit. It's another Romanesque structure that was built in the 15th century that contains the tomb of Bartolomeo Colleoni complete with reliefs and statuary. You'll be in and out in five minutes.

Everything in this chapel is mind blowing exquisite - the workmanship is truly wonderful - its quite simply the most inspiring example of what man can create - one word of advice try and go during the week off season - its worth a pilgrimage.

Amazing and intricate geometrical designs in marble are the first feature one observes at the Capella Colleoni - breath-takingly beautiful, the intricate designs are a wonder to see.

beautfully elaborate decoration for a small town , a true gem of a building, both inside and out, check out the well polished lion statues outside where years of passers-by have sat or touched the monument.

A beautiful looking chapel on the edge of the Piazza Vecchia, very ornate outside and surprisingly small inside.

It is a great mix of 15th century building by Amadeo with later baroque details and excellent Tiepolo frescos on the celling.

Firstly you had a job to get through the door given the... More

Although the chapel is quite small, in comparison, it is breathtaking! A most beautiful and unexpectedly detailed building. The architecture and the attention to detail to the interior was, literally, very moving.
