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.

From the outside plain grey walls , but once through the doors is a hiden delight. The church takes you off the busy hot streets and into the cool interior.

That church is located on the main street of Citta Alta but can be easily missed because it is somehow tucked away. The exterior doesn't give a clue about the exclusively beautiful decoration inside. We went there late in the evening, after dinner, and we...More

This little church is located in the Citta Attica and is worth stepping by even just for a few minutes.

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
