“Amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

it is indeed an amazing Cathedral and as you walk in different directions down other streets you can spot part of it. It is well worth a visit. I have visited many Cathedrals & basilicas through out the world & this is impressive as are the other ones in Lucca's old Town.

“Unbeatable facade, don't miss the Botticelli.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

One of the iconic sites of Lucca this church has a fantasic facade with a friendly looking St Michael sitting on top. Inside the 4 saints picture by Botticellli is no to be missed. There are three good bar on the square and some days a market there too.

“A must see piazza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

This is a magnificent church in the centre of a bustling square. Quite often there are talented buskers and if you are lucky enough, you can sit in the square listening to them as you watch the world go by. There are so many good photographs to take in this square from the buildings surrounding the church to the church itself. Better still, Pucinini's house is just around the corner and we used the square as a marker to get our bearings for so many other great sites in Lucca.
