Bergamo Cathedral unveils treasures

I was strolling an ancient but otherwise unremarkable street when I came upon 17th century Bergamo Cathedral, writes Terry Lee.

Unsuspecting, unaware, I stepped inside and was delightfully surprised as another of the northern Italian town’s treasures unveiled itself.

Bergamo Cathedral has a small simple interior with a single nave but is highly decorated with bright white walls, extensive detailing highlighted by gold leaf, marble floors, a baroque altar and elaborate dome.

Bergamo is a town rich in cultural high points, with a mixture of medieval and Renaissance architecture and so many wonderful vistas, and here it was rewarding me with yet another.

As there is little traffic in this hillside town there and its lanes are narrow Bergamo a good place to wander and soak up its history.
