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...More

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.

Entrance can be easily missed as you walk dwon the street. The interior is richly ornamented (but probably you can tell the same about most of the Bergamo churches). Quite peaceful, without many visitors. As already mentioned - worth a quick look.

Beautiful church being restored in Bergamo Alta. it is on the main road leading to the Piazza Vecchia. It looks like it became damaged after an hotel next door was being renovated. It is monitored, because it's not completely stable, but it is worth a...More
