The palazzo is pretty, the churches facade is georgous and the church is amazing. It is easy to get to and the details around the church are interesting. You cannot even imagine how awesome the city of Lucca is in general.

More to see than I expected. You can buy books etc. in English in the little shop inside the cathedral. There is an interesting museum and the beautiful tomb sculpture of the wife of a ruler of Lucca. We spent more than an hour there.

We visited for about one hour and we were amazed at the beautiful artwork and size of this church. I could not imagine how they built this so many years ago without the benefit of modern technology. Just amazing!!

Another impressive cathedral of the many that we visited in our two weeks in Italy. While the cathedral's exterior was not overwhelming, the interior had a certain magic about it.
