Exploring Bergamo and Brescia
At the foot of the first foothills of the Bergamasque Alps leading to Valcalepio, the area of Grumello del Monte has hosted human settlements since the Palaeolithic period. However, the most important architectural works in this comune in the province of Bergamo date back to much later periods. Don’t miss the Castle of Gonzaga, which was originally built as a military bulwark to defend against enemies but was transformed into an elegant private residence in the 17th century. The Palazzo Camozzi-Vertova also belonged to a noble family.
During your visit, we recommend visiting the Parish Church of the Holy Trinity, decorated with paintings by Carobbio and Carpaccio, the Church of San Pantaleone and the Santuario del Calvario sanctuary.
Grumello del Monte is the ideal starting point for exploring the area between the provinces of Bergamo and Brescia. In just a 30-minute car journey, you can reach the Upper City, the centre of Brescia, Iseo and its namesake Lake Iseo.
