Sarnico

Overview

An Art Nouveau jewel overlooking Lake Iseo

Sarnico is an elegant town on the Bergamo side of Lake Iseo, an ideal destination for a trip out of town in Lombardy. Located at the southern end of the famous Italian basin, where the waters flow into the River Oglio, Sarnico can boast one of the most evocative and longest lakeside promenades on Lake Iseo, a path that winds its way from the panoramic steps to the Via Roma bridge linking Sarnico and Paratico, on and on to the Lazzarini Public Gardens, at the gates of the old town centre.

Visitors to Sarnico are also won over by the delightful old town centre with its Art Nouveau buildings and old churches of special value, such as the small Church of San Paolo dominated by its clock tower dating from the mid-19th century and the Church of San Martino Vescovo with its Baroque façade and frescoed ceilings.

A visit to the narrow streets in the centre of Sarnico must also include a visit to the Gianni Bellini Civic Museum of Art and Territory, a small treasure chest housing more than 150 works of art from the schools of painting in northern Italy.
