Lotto's frescoes
Jul. 2021
Very good frescoes by Lorenzo Lotto. Very convenient for visit if you descend from Citta Alta by foot to Accademia Carrara, the church is near the gate.

Beautiful , charming and full of history
Oct. 2019
A small church that is hardly noticed from the outside. You cross the threshold and immerse yourself in the spirituality of the Middle Ages. A 15th-century church with one nave decorated with numerous frescoes and "Scenes of Mary's life" and "Annunciation" by Lorenzo Lotto. Also visit the crypt, which is the oldest in the Bergamo area. The Church of San Michele Al Pozzo Bianco is the jewel of Bergamo's Citta Alta. A timeless place. For those who love the raw simplicity of the art of this period, it is an unforgettable experience. Admission free.

Very ancient church with beautiful decoration
Jan. 2020
San Michele al Pozzo Bianco is a very ancient church with beautiful paintings, a witness of art of ancient times in Lombardy. Visiting the church means also visiting a beautiful district of old town Bergamo.

Perfect church to get married in, for those who love art, history and romance!
Jul. 2019
I found myself outside in the fresh sunbathe air on a hill in Bergamo Alta overlooking Bergamo Bassa: a breathtaking panorama lays below with stunning views of the same city. Once I arrive near the Former Church of Sant’ Agostino on the Piazza della Fara, I take Via Porta Dipinta, which is a hilly street that leads to the old city of Bergamo. After 50 metres on the left there is a very old church which is home to an entire Lorenzo Lotto fresco-cycle devoted to the Storie della Vergine (Stories of the Virgin Mother; 1525). Curiously enough, Lotto lived next door to the church in the Casa del Vicario (House of the Vicar), which today belongs to the Ursuline Sisters.I give you a tip: it's a jewel!

my unexpected No. 2 in Bergamo
May 2016 • Couples
strolling around upper Bergamo, we passed by here. and just as we had a lot of time, we steped in, not expecting anything. but this church offers some really wonderful fresco painting, going back to the 12th century, and in the crypta even dating back to 800 AD. we spent about an hour here, even if we thought it would not take us more then 5 minutes... To fully enjoy the fresco, drop some coins at the entrance fee to light the church up.

Make time for it

I have a feeling people don't really know about this little medieval gem. Do please try to put it onto your itinerary when in Città Alta, you won't regret it.

Cool little find!

Stop by here for a few minutes just to admire the plaster walls and numerous original frescoes. A perfect place to cool down on a hot day, this church is noticeably old. Just come in for 15 minutes or so!

Amazing frescoes

Pay a few euros to turn the lights on and give yourself a self-guided tour. A docent from the treasures of the duomo suggested checking out this church and we weren't disappointed

A little jem a bit hard to find
Jan. 2014 • Solo
It was a bit hard to find , but it was worth it. The option to turn the light on is not inside, but at the door outside (1 euro is more than enough to see everything). The simple ancient church with beautiful frescos (in the crypt too). I was alone but the church attendant and it was a wonderful experience
