Bergamo in general has done excellent job in marking their visitor's landmarks with details. I don't understand how this ancient bath was divided with dividers that I can't imagine how it's used in old days. Close to main street.

An interesting bit of history, well preserved. It is just off the main street up through Citta Alta.

This is something you don't see in many places. The last one we saw similar to this was in Cefalu. This was the place where they used to was clothes in the old days. Something different to see.

Small spot in a small park, but it is an excellent example of a public wash station in an old Italian city. If you're in old Bergamo, find thi.

While walking in Città alta, opposite Piazza del fieno, you should not miss this little corner. Lavatoio was used a long time ago to wash clothes, it's no more functioning but is perfectly intact. I haven't seen any so beautiful anywhere.

Since La Citta Alta is generally an attractive area to visit, you will find a lot of things worth your attention. And I doubt that you will find a soft spot in your heart for the Lavatorio. It just sort of disappears in the noise....More
