Visited the cloister to see a film (The Producers - not sure the Carmelite order would approve) in the evening. Atmospheric courtyard made even more so by thunder and lightning. Pleasant and organised staff. A perfect place to watch a weird movie.

Beautiful church being restored in Bergamo Alta. it is on the main road leading to the Piazza Vecchia. It looks like it became damaged after an hotel next door was being renovated. It is monitored, because it's not completely stable, but it is worth a...More
