Sanctuary of our Lady of The Castle

Description

Built vertically on the river Brembo where once there was a very ancient castle, the church (XVI century) dominates a wide landscape and is close to the ancient parish church of San Salvatore (VII century), one of the best preserved examples of Bergamo's Pre-Romanesque.

By means of two little side staircases you can get to the crypt, the most ancient one in the province, which still has the atmosphere of the ancient religious places.

It's rectangular, divided transversely by four columns with capitals maybe partly rescued from a pre-existent Roman building. Inside you can see frescoes datable from the X to the XVI century and a sandstone ambo of the XII century.
