Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore | Bergamo, Italy

Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore in Bergamo, Italy

The Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore in Bergamo was founded in 1137 and it is located in the center of the Upper Town of Bergamo. Unfortunately we couldn’t go inside during our day in Bergamo, but also from outside it is an impressive church. Remarkable are the lion statues to find on the entrance of the church since they could be a sign that the church once was used as a court as well.
