“Amazing”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Quite simply one of the most beautiful churches I have ever been in. Lavished with beautiful art and a real sense of calm.

“One of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

It is a must see! It is located on the center of the Citta Alta and has a smal entrance, but inside is great, super decorated and huge!

“Amazing Church”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

That's the main church of Bergamo in which there are some the tombs of Beramo's celebrities as the musican composer Gaetano Donizetti; the ceiling is completely painted and adorned with beautiful carvings and tapestries.

“Must see church!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

We have seen quite some churches in Europe already, and decided that this church belongs to the top 10 we have seen far. Recommendable place to visit.
