A beautiful cathedral in the heart of Lucca. We were lucky to visit during the Luminaria de Santa Croce, where a procession wound through the streets of Lucca, ending at the Cathedral, where a cross of Jesus was clothed in gold, especially for the celebration. The interior of the church is beautiful, with mosaics, and paintings.

Located in the walled, Tuscan town of Lucca, this Duomo is the site of several pieces of art worth seeing; but more importantly, it was built in the 6 th century, with additional construction over the years, til the 1200's. It was consecrated by Pope Alexander ll, formerly the Bishop of Lucca. The Duomo is located in San Martino Square,... More

Lucca, a walled city, of course has a cathedral. Step inside for a few minutes and appreciate the art work.

Central location in Lucca. Great gathering area with beautiful church, local shopping and eatery's. Stores selling Italian kitchen wear including espresso makers and all little gadgets for every kitchen. Close is a store where they actually weave silk scarves right before your eyes. Such pride in their crafts. This is the best kept secret.

Definately worth a visit, but not a "must see" place to go if you only have a few days in Lucca. There ia some original and beautiful art built into the building.

A beautiful Cathedral to visit, at the moment the Spire in the middle is being renovated. Wonderful stained glass windows.An amazing place worth visiting. You do have to pay to go in, but is worth the few euros

This is the most important church of the town and it's wonderful, inside and outside. It was built in the typical and famous tuscan style.

I really didn't know much about Lucca prior to our arrival but I really liked the feel of this lovely city. Really great atmosphere everywhere we went, not as touristy. Would love to comeback and spend a day or two here. The Duomo, although not quite as impressive as it Florentine counterpart but every bit as impressive.

WOW we loved Lucca, with its Renaissance walls which rings this small city that dates back to 180 BC - the times of the Etruscans and Roman's. Its walls still protect the historical centre, the Medieval tower (Torre Giunigi) with its hanging garden, Medieval and Renaissance art. Also don’t miss the Basilica of San Frediano. This is an easy city... More
