“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Impressive works of art and architecture. Occassionally free concerts and programs. Located in the Piazza Vecchia close to every thing else in Bergam. A lot of stuff to see and do in a small place.

“Astonishing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

We visited the Basilica on a day trip to Bergamo organised by Inghams whilst we stayed in Menaggio. This was an astonishing edifice, funded originally by the Town dwellers, it is lavishly decorated and brilliantly preserved. Restoration underway. Closed at lunchtime.

“stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

This was the one place I just had to visit in Begamo and it was everything I hoped for. Outside the architecture is amazing and leaves youwondering how on earth they managed to build something so truly magnificent so many years ago. Inside is stunning and places like this always make me feel very emotional. I could sit in there for hours in wonderment at the artistry and skill on display.

“Beautiful!”

At first, we thought that this church was the Cathedral, because it was quite large. Worth the visit!
