Alzano Lombardo

Se visiti Alzano, potrai immergerti in uno vero scrigno d’arte e natura. La storia millenaria e la significativa estensione territoriale, rendono questo centro del fondovalle davvero unico .

In the low valley near the right bank of the River Serio, the municipality is 294 metres above sea level at the end of the valley from which rise a series of hills; they become mountains towards the north up to the 1,229 metre Filaressa bordering the valleys of Seriana and Brembana.
A town rich in art, Alzano Lombardo offers visitors the splendid Basilica di San Martino, the three vestries and the Museum of Holy Art S. Martino, which has interesting works by Tintoretto, Cavagna, Cappella, the young and old Palma, Fantoni and Caniana. The ex-Pelliccioli municipal building is 17th century, the Gothic S. Pietro Martire Church is 15th century; in Olera, a small hamlet of medieval origin which is still well preserved, there is the chapel of the SS. Trinità, built in 1296 and in the parish of S. Bartolomeo, the famous politician of Giovanni Battista Cima da Conegliano (1498).
The hilly territory on the border with the Parco dei Colli is packed with paths – no fewer than five with directional signage by the CAI – plus numerous variants, which can be traversed in all seasons.
