Lucca is a smaller town. In tuscany they seem to have Duomo. We visited enroute to pisa. At the time some work was being carried out. Im into architecture. Lovely detail around the arches. We were late so didnt have the opportunity to go inside. Worth a stop, when wondering through luccas streets.

So so church. You get spoiled around Italy and France with the beautiful churches. SPend the money on the puccini performance.

While Italy is full of beautiful churches, this is still a very fine example of church architecture in the old citadel of Lucca. Its assymetrical, almost Baroque facade is quite unique.

The cathedral is dedicated to St. Martin, the imposing asymmetry facade is built in white and green marble. The gothic interior is very nice, with lovely shrine tempietto to shelter the Volto Santo. Very nice Last supper by Tintoretto.

We saw tito artworks, amazing church and we'll priced entry fee. Easy access with buggy and not very busy. There is plenty to see but if needed could spend 30min to make the most of it.

This Cathedral was being renovated , on the exterior, when we visited so it was partly shrouded in scaffolding and dust covers. Still hugely impressive. Small crowd had gathered outside to watch the workmen carefully hoist large chunks of repaired/cleaned decorative stonework to the top of the Cathedral roof. Entrance fee of 4 euros to view interior. Many visitors on... More

Visited the Duomo yesterday. A fine big church, lovely and cool inside. Some building work going on, the area to the left of the altar is under wraps all the way up to the ceiling way way way up there as they are repainting or something. The restoration is good, the repainting of the ceiling is magnificent (I assume it... More

The church was rebuilt in the 1400’s in the Gothic style, but the original apse from the 11th century remains. Note the symmetrical arches and ports. This is a great example of how columns and marble from other older sites was put to work in building and rebuilding churches. Note the mismatched columns on the façade. The most important feature...

The biggest and most finely decorated of Lucca's numerous churches is well worth a visit. The ceiling has apparently been restored recently, and is richly colored. The stained glass windows and frescoes are impressive as well. There are some fine medieval paintings and a marble sculpture in the small gallery off of the right side of the main part of... More
