Church of S. Bernardino

Church of S. Bernardino

Description

Situated at the entrance of Bergamo’s most aristocratic road, this church was most likely built following the saint’s two visits to the city (1419-1422). Re-consecrated by the bishop in 1593, perhaps after a major restoration, it was decorated throughout the years.

Its neo-Gothic form was created between the nineteenth and twentieth century: a single space, punctuated by 5 bays, 3 of which are believed to be fifteenth-century, with a gabled facade. The altarpiece is the work of Lorenzo Lotto (1521) .

 

The church is managed by the Parish of Sant'Alessandro in Croce, and the visit is free to the public thanks to the collaboration of the Touring Club Italiano volunteers.

Opening hours
Tuesday - Sunday:
10 - 12 am | 2 - 5 pm
