Tavernola Bergamasca is a picturesque holiday locality overlooking Lake Iseo. It is situated on the Vigolo Valley, and in ancient times it was a landing point in a deep, difficult to navigate, part of the lake. Today, calcareous materials extracted from Monte Saresana are processed. The area also has a remarkable natural beauty, with wonderful karstic and hydrogeological formations: including caves, morainic terraces, and the "Giants Pothole". The most attractive monument is the Parish of S. Pietro, built in about 1200 on a rocky ridge overlooking the lake. The bell tower and the XVI century frescoes, one of them attributable to Girolamo Romanino, are particularly valuable. The "gentilizia" tower is worth visiting, a recollection of a 14th-century castle and now used as a bell tower. The (XVIII century) parish church is highlighted by the choir stall by G. A. Sanz and the altar by Andrea Fantoni. The arcades are very beautiful, dating back to ancient Bergamo traditions. The most characteristic traditional festival is the feast of "Madonna di Cortinica", is held in July. The locality is served by lake navigation lines. Near the pier there is a permanent exposition of typical products of the village.
