Treviglio

Description

It is one of the most important towns in the plain south of Bergamo and is located in the centre of a crossroads between roads and railways that connect it to Bergamo, Milan and other important cities in Lombardy.

Treviglio’s origins are very old. The village was developed in the 10th and 11th centuries around the enclosed castle, founded in the period of barbarian invasions by the inhabitants of the three Roman villas Portoli, Pisgnano and Cusarola.

The historic shops and artisan workshops enliven the historic centre and in the central square stands San Martino’s Basilica, an important church dedicated to the Saint of Tours. Besides preserving important works of the Lombard Renaissance, it boasts the highest bell tower in Lombardy.

Noble manors of considerable value and artistic wealth, among which Palazzo Silva stands out, are located in Via Galliari, named after the famous artist brothers. The Sanctuary of Madonna delle Lacrime, a pilgrimage destination, houses the sword and helmet of General Odet de Foix and numerous works by artists such as Molinari and Bernardino Butinone.

In Piazza Mentana stands the Civic Museum, which houses paintings, drawings, sculptures and engravings from the 14th century to the present day.

Bar Milano, a historic café par excellence, still retains the original furnishings of the early twentieth century and the Liberty-style counter.

In Treviglio there are a number of natural areas where you can spend days in the midst of nature: the Roccolo Park and the Gera d'Adda Park.
