Bergamo fortress town

The town of Bergamo has always been fortified, from the Romans, who built the first defensive walls, through the Medieval Times when the so called Citadel and a second ring of walls were built up to the construction of the majestic “modern style” walls built by the Venetians. In the XVI Century.
On 09. July 2017 Bergamo – together with other Italian and foreign towns – has entered the list of the UNESCO World Heritage under the title “The Venetian defense works between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries: the State of the Land and the State of the Western Sea”
