See magnificent altarpiece by Lorenzo Lotto


Not to be missed in Bergamo’s Città Bassa…


SAN BERNARDINO IN PIGNOLO


Although it is only a small church, San Bernardino in Pignolo is well worth a visit to see the art treasures it contains.
From Piazzetta Santo Spirito turn left into Via Pignolo and walk up the street in the direction of the Città Alta (upper town),  crossing Via Verdi, to the church of San Bernardino, built in the 16th century as a chapel for the use of the nobility and rich merchants who were living in palaces higher up Via Pignolo.
Inside the church there is a vaulted ceiling with frescoes by Talpino and there are works by Gian Paolo Cavagna and Andrea Previtali.
The stunning altarpiece by Lorenzo Lotto portraying the Enthroned Madonna with Child, Angels and Saints was painted in 1521 during the artist's stay in Bergamo.
Opening hours: 08.00 to 11.30 and 16.00 to 18.00; Sundays and holidays 08.00 to 12.00.

  6. Lottery corporations constantly chant the mantra 'You Can't Win If You Don't Play' as a sales tool, but they are right on the money. You can't win if you don't play!idn poker
