Churches Bergamo. Discover the inspiring churches of Lombardy in a stunning city that offers a varied selection of historical, cultural, and architectural monuments.


Tourism in Bergamo allows you to find important sacred architecture that has enthralled visitors over the centuries. Near the old Piazza Vecchia square, labelled by Le Corbusier as the most beautiful one in Europe, stands the Cathedral of Sant'Alessandro, guarding the remains of the saint. The facade is the result of restoring works done in the eighteen hundreds, while it is possible to watch a XVIth century cross and a wooden altarpiece inside. 


Among the churches in Lombardy of great importance, the Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica is definitely worth visiting. It is connected to the Colleone chapel, displaying frescos by Tiepolo.


Furthermore, consider visiting churches like the Franciscan Church of Graces with XIXth C. paintings and the San Bartolomeo one, with the Martinengo altar by Lorenzo Lotto. The one at the Hospital was painted by Carlo Innocenzo Carloni.


Check the interesting churches in Bergamo's neighboring towns. Tourism in Bergamo takes you to the Oratory of the Disciplini in Clusone and the Sanctuary of Caravaggio, dedicated to the Virgin Mary who supposedly appeared to a peasant girl in 1432.
