Beautiful church in the upper part of Bergamo
Oct 2019
The Church of Sant'Agata del Carmine was built in 1357 on the site of the previous one from the 9th century. The facade is in a classic style, divided into two parts: one with visible bricks and the other with plaster. In the second half of the 15th century it was enlarged and renovated . In the following years, it was extended and enlarged by adding chapels with the participation of private funds . Major damage occurred during the Napoleonic occupation, when it was turned into a prison. The prison was there until 1977. Due to water infiltration, the structure of the building was severely degraded. In 2012, general restoration works began, which led to the renovation of the roof, reconstruction of the Chapel of the Heart of Jesus, as well as the main facade and side walls. Now the church is rich with furniture, paintings, stucco . The interior has a single aisle, longitudinal plan, in a classic 17th-century style with baroque accents. Currently, it is very interestingly renovated and it is really worth visiting this historic church for a while. Free admission.

Medieval origins

The first church dedicated to Saint Agata was built in the 10th century , what we can see today was built in 1357 by Umiliati then passed to Friars Carmelitani.
Facade very simple.
Internal with one nave an five chapels for each side.
Many valuable paintings can be seen inside these chapels, don’t miss the wooden icon of Saint Agata made by Jacopino Scipioni in 1510

Not outside

The church is simple nothing from outside, but inside is full of beautiful decorations, statues, frescos. Even that it is on the main street, it is very calm.

Beautiful church in Bergamo, Italy
Oct 2018 • Family
I visited this church more than 4 years ago and I came back this year. The restoration brought it back to its splendor after it was severely damaged by water infiltration. The first chapel on the right has a beautiful altar dedicated to the Holy Virgin and Jesus.

Extraordinary cloister location for an outside cinema
Aug 2018 • Friends
Visited the cloister to see a film (The Producers - not sure the Carmelite order would approve) in the evening. Atmospheric courtyard made even more so by thunder and lightning. Pleasant and organised staff. A perfect place to watch a weird movie.

From the outside plain grey walls , but once through the doors is a hiden delight. The church takes you off the busy hot streets and into the cool interior.

That church is located on the main street of Citta Alta but can be easily missed because it is somehow tucked away. The exterior doesn't give a clue about the exclusively beautiful decoration inside.
We went there late in the evening, after dinner, and we were just passing by when something urged me to enter. It was so tranquil after strolling the busy streets of the Upper City, no one else inside, beautifully decorated walls and ceilings.
Definitely worth a visit.

A plain exterior hides a beautiful interior.

It is quite easy to walk past this church. It is set back slightly from the main street up through Citta Alta. However the interior is beautiful, very tranquil and well worth a visit.

It was one of the first churches that we came across as we entered the city.

Very peaceful place that kept us out of the rain and again it was free to enter.
