Bergamo Off The Beaten Path: 85 reviews and 239 photos
You'll find this ancient structure round the back of Santa Maria Maggiore.
It dates from the first half of the 11th century, with the first written mention in 1153.
I could find out very little more about the structure. although it is clearly possible to access the interior, the gate was locked when I visited. There's an archaeological drawing on the wall nearby, showing how the chapel fits into the existing and destroyed structures surrounding it.
The interior of the building follows the plan of a Greek cross and I believe there are 16th-century frescoes inside (it underwent restoration in the 1500s).
