In the shadow of the Duomo, this chapel houses some delightful murals. Not too busy, so its possible to relax and enjoy this landmark.

A beautiful chapel which dominates the small cathedral square. Despite being the smallest church building it has the biggest entrance and I think many think it is the entrance to the cathedral. Bartholomew Colleoni had the place built as his mausoleum and inside he is depicted in gold atop a horse. He seems to be sitting rather comfortably considering he... More

This chapel must be seen during your stay in Bergamo. Learn about the history of the man who created this shrine to himself... Colleoni - he was quite a character.

The facade is so imposing and lavishly decorated, with colonnades, a huge rosette and a dome, that you'd take it for the front of the basilica. Actually, it is only the front of a small chapel, where there are the statue and sarcophagus of Bartolomeo Colleoni and the resting place of one of his daughters. There is a door leading... More

Inside, as well as outside, the chapel is adorned with intricate decorations, marble sculptures and bassreliefs. All works are of the finest quality and material. However, what annoyed me most about the visit is the constand Shhhhhh and NOOOOOoooo shouted by the custodian as people keep taking pictures of the sculptures although a large sign at the entrance forbids photographs...

We thought it was the best good looking church in Bergamo; it is more a chapel, but very nice lines in the outside and inside we can see nice strecture and sculptures.

It's literally next to the cathedral and basilica, so you may as well check it out. The final resting place of a rich and powerful man, it's fittingly extravagant, but otherwise not that interesting.

This is the extravagant resting place of Bartolomeo Colleoni, a mercenary from Bergamo who lived at the time when the city was under Venetian control. The entrance is to the right of the main entrance of Santa Maria Maggiore. The gates outside are a feature in itelf - If you look closlely there are certain bits that are shinier than... More

I am not a fan of Baroque but this family chapel has to be seen to be believed, As a precursor to visiting the Duomo is it worth visiting but don't try and get in during the lunch period.
