“Not delightful for me”

Cattedrale (Duomo) di Bergamo e Battistero
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Golden statue of Saint Alexander on the dome is pretty recognisable symbol of the cathedral when looking at the city from one of the towers or from San Vigilio hill. But cathedral facade is not eye-catching, the interior does not impress much either. Personally, I prefered Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore to cattedrale. Not that I discourage you from visiting, but this church does not have the ambience similar to the neighbouring basilica.

Worth a visit for the amazing wall paintings, decorated ceilings and beautiful, recently renovated tapestries. Nearby in the small piazza an amazing way of telling the time!

Well mantained cathedral with several paintings. The Battistero has several Bas-relief that make this place another gem of the old city.

Bergamo cathedral was lovely with many treasures to see. It closes for several hours around lunchtime so time your visit well if you don't want to be rushed.
