Cavernago borders the municipalities of Calcinate, Ghisalba, Grassobbio, Seriate, Urgnano, and Zanica. It is home to the Malpaga Castle, a Renaissance fortress owned by the condottiero and local lord Bartolomeo Colleoni. Another castle, that of Cavernago proper, was later remade in the 17th century in Baroque style.
