Rocca - The stronghold

Description

This Fortress dating back to the year 1331 really captures the essence of Bergamo’s history. You can follow the guided itinerary designed by the Museo Storico di Bergamo’s XIX century section, walking across gardens, walkways, towers and war relics.

If you go along the walkway layout, the same one walked by the guarding soldiers hundreds of years ago, the experience will be absolutely magical: a 360° panoramic tour all around the building.

With just one glance, you will enjoy the view of Città Alta, the Orobie Mountains and the entire plain.

The walk across history continues in the garden: discover the numerous relics of the two World Wars!


The fortress was built in 1331, but it was enhanced over the time, especially for what concerns the defensive purpose.

One of the most evocative elements is the circular plan fortified tower, the Stronghold’s main tower from: being the highest point of the structure, the view from here is absolutely stunning and you are lucky enough, when the weather is good you can also spot the Milan’s skyline!

Beneath the Stronghold’s walls you can also see the Parco delle Rimembranze: children always love to play with the old tank and the cannons.

Relax under the cypresses shadow and enjoy this place full of memory and charm.
