Fodor's Review

Bergamo's Duomo and Battistero are the most substantial buildings in Piazza Duomo. But the most impressive structure is the Cappella Colleoni, which boasts a kaleidoscope of marble decoration and golden accents.

Commissioned in 1472 by Bartolomeo Colleoni and designed by Amadeo, this chapel represents Bergamo’s finest example of Renaissance architecture. Although still incomplete, the leader was buried there in 1475. Inside visitors can see his sarcophagus with marble reliefs of Amadeo and the equestrian statue of Sixtus of Nuremberg in gilded wood. Frescoes by G.B. Tiepolo (1733) can be seen in the spandrels and lunettes.
