Bergamo: Sanctuary (Santuario) of the Madonna in Caravaggio

The Sanctuary of Caravaggio (province of Bergamo, close to Milan) is a well known church dedicated to the Madonna, who according to tradition appeared in this place to a farmer in 1432. The original sanctuary, built by order of Visconti the rulers of Milan, was then substituted by this new building requested by Cardinal Carlo Borromeo in the second half of 16th century. The costruction was completed over one century later. Pope Giovanni Paolo II visited the Sanctuary in 1992.

The church includes a dome 64 meters high and it is surrounded by a vast area including 800 meters of covered portici (in the 360 photo).
