Construction began in 1561 by the Venetian Republic with the goal of creating a powerful defensive fortification that could protect against enemy attacks, but fate was favorable to the city and its inhabitants, and Bergamo never had to be under siege.
Thus, the result of the great construction of the XVI century came to our days intact and in complete safety. 14 bastions, 2 observation platforms, 100 loopholes and 4 gates, as well as a whole tangled underground city with secret exits, galleries and tunnels, were equipped in the wall itself.
