As you walk up the Via Fillungo you will reach a plaza that is overlooked by the beautiful San Frediano mosaic. It glimmers in the sun but is unmistakeable in any weather. This treasure of Middle Age art is something you must see when visiting Lucca. And it is even easier to enjoy when stopping at one of the restaurants with outdoor seating in the piazza this facade overlooks. I spent a lot of time here and will never forget this iconic image.
The inside of the church of limited hours so hopefully you will arrive when you can take a peek inside. But if not, the treasure is this mosaic and you can view it any time of night or day. If you are in Lucca, don't miss it.
