|Piazza Mercato del Fieno
The square was once the site of the Città Alta’s hay market and is still bordered by three medieval tower houses.
One of the houses, which used to be owned by Bergamo’s rich and powerful Suardi family, has a pretty little balcony under a double arched mullioned window.
Piazza Mercato del Fieno is now the location of the Città Alta’s post office and also has some shops, bars and restaurants.
To find the square, turn right from Via Gombito opposite the Città Alta’s tourist office.
The piazza is a good place to stand to take a photograph of the Gombito tower, which looms high above Via Gombito.
