    The history of the Cathedral of Bergamo goes back to the 9th century.
    The current church dates form the 17th century and is dedicated to Saint Alexander of Bergamo, patron saint of the city.
    The cathedral has a Latin cross ground plan with a single nave with awesome paintings ans sculptures.
    Admission is free, although a (small) donation will always be appreciated.
    Nearby stands the 14th century octagonal baptistery.

    This lovely little chapel/church is at one end of the Piazza Vecchia and crowded among a number of other fantastic religious buildings. I would have loved to have taken some photos of the interior but that’s forbidden raising questions about the number of photos posted here…

    The Basilica of Sant'Alessandro in Colonna is located in the center of Bergamo Bassa. A beautiful basilica that houses the relics of Bergamo's patron S. Alessandro, rich in valuable works by local painters. The church is very special, with its peculiar column placed in the front square. The origins of the building date back to the first centuries of Christianity when the saint martyred in Bergamo. The current structure comes from the 17th century. The facade is in the neoclassical style from the 18th century. The interior has a Latin cross plan with a single nave. A temple full of works of art and architectural elements. Worth seeing while walking around the city.

    The Madonna dello Spasimo church in Bergamo, also called Santa Lucia, is a small church located in Bergamo Bassa. Its construction began in 1764 on the ruins of an earlier church from 1592. The interior has one elongated nave with side altars .This is a very beautiful church in the center of Bergamo that houses the relics of St. Lucia. During the holiday season, children bring well-intentioned letters here and a list of desired gifts for the feast day of December 13. Very beautiful church.

    The Church of San Vigilio was built in the early 8th century on a hill that was given the same name. The facade is from the 17th century, with doors made of bas-reliefs. The interior has a single nave, with an elongated plan in the local 17th century style. It has a facade facing west and a bell tower. The church is very beautiful and the panoramic position is just amazing.
