Not to be missed in Bergamo’s Città Bassa…
SANT’ALESSANDRO DELLA CROCE
|Sant'Alessandro della Croce|
The church can be found in Via Pignolo close to the square of Piazzetta del Delfino, where there is a lovely 16th century fountain.
Although the elaborate façade was added as recently as 1930, the interior of the church has original baroque decoration and an 18th century inlaid marble altar by Andrea Fantoni.
It is also worth a look round inside the church to see works by Giovan Battista Moroni, Andrea Previtali, Palma the Younger, Sebastiano Ricci and Leandro Bassano.
In the sacristry you will see an early 16th century painting of Christ carrying the cross by Lorenzo Costa and the painting of the Holy Trinity by Renaissance artist Lorenzo Lotto.
Sant’Alessandro della Croce is open from 7 am to 11.45 and from 3.30 to 7 pm.
