This is the city’s main cathedral, dedicated to the city’s patron, Saint Alexander the Martyr and built on the foundations of an existing primitive structure, presumably founded in the 6th century and originally dedicated to St. Vincent. Is it by chance that my son Alex...More

One of the most interesting places to visit in Bergamo. It's very quiet and calm inside but the paintings are indescribable in words - just amazing.

An out-of-plan visit that resulted in a time of history and learning was a short time but it was able to learn the meaning of the monument

It’s ok. I prefer the basilica if you have to choose which to visit - my partner made up a rule. We can only visit one religious location in each town. We are both atheists lol

You can buy a cover-all ticket in the building opposite the Duomo. Worth the cost. The museum is a bit underwhelming to be honest, just a series of murals.
