About Via Mercatorum.

Via Mercatorum is one of the historic routes we can find in the Bergamo area. Its Latin name suggests its purpose: this was the road that merchants used to travel during the Middle Ages up to the construction of the Via Priula, which was built in 1593 under the Venetian domination.
