Church of S. Agata

Church of S. Agata

Description

Walking along via Colleoni, in Città Alta, you’ll get to a side alley called “vicolo Sant’Agata”. The Church of the same name used to be here, in the building that currently hosts the restaurant “Il Circolino”, one of the most popular places for Bergamo’s inhabitants.

The church was deconsecrated by order of Napoleon in the XIX Century, so the near S. Maria Annunciata Church, part of the Carmelite convent, was renamed “Sant’Agate del Carmine”.
The Carmelite monastery, dating back to 1391, was closed in the late XVIII Century.
Sant’Agata Church features a single nave with five chapels per side: the most significant and imposing one is the Madonna del Carmine Chapel, decorated with a beautiful baroque altar made by the renowned architect Filippo Juvarra.
