Urgnano castle

Description

At the crossroad between the “Cremasca” and “Francesca” streets, two of the main commercial roads crossing Bergamo’s Plain, stands the Urgnano Castle, which has not lost a single gram of charm over seven hundred years!

We suggest you to enter from the Southern gate, decorated with a ravelin, a further external fortification protecting the gate, dating back to the XIX Century.

The interiors kept the military layout, but the building has been renovated as an aristocratic palace and gained a more opulent kind of beauty.

Going up and down the castle you will find frescoed halls, sumptuous decorations, XVIII Century furniture and a rich collection of ancient maps.

Once you’ve finished your visit, you can relax in the lovely and cosy Italian style roof garden, perfect for a break, protected by the thick walls: all the stress of the world will just stay outside.
