Nice cathedral

The Duomo is nice, very quiet in comparison to Pisa and Florence, the fee to get in was around €3 so not bad. In and out in 10 minutes

Beautiful Duomo, it reflects the beauty of many churches in Italy, but also the town itself is lovely. Walk up the tower for amazing views over the city for a complete experience. The town of Lucca itself is absolutely lovely and I definitely recommend a visit.

Worth the small entry fee to see this beautiful Church. You can also pay a small supplement, and go up in the tower.

Beautiful cathedral, with plenty of history and amazing architecture, with interesting stories of saints and goings on and how it was built, they also hold concerts in the square here in the summer months

Stunning gothic architecture standing in the beautiful Piazza San Martino. As we were short on time, we did not pay admission to go inside. Nevertheless, the outside was worth staring at and taking photos.

Very nice church. Quite a few groups around the day we were here, a little busy. I would say worth the time to check it out.

I had the advantage of going through the church with a very knowledgeable guide. The art inside, the architecture and art outside, as well as the history of the church itself, made it a high point of my tour of the city.

I have seen this beautiful Cathedral in a couple of movies, it is definitely an outstanding plaza to visit, with really lovely buildings with architecture of different styles. I loved this city and will return next year!

Exceptionally well preserved dating back to the 11th century. Contains an exquisite early Renaissance sculpted tomb of Queen Ilaria and magnificent paintings by Ghirlandaio in the sacristy and beautiful art & artifacts in the church. There is a well preserved painted wooden ceiling.

No visit to a Tuscan town is complete without visiting it's Duomo or main cathedral. This one is located on a large and open square at Piazza San Martino. It's a beautiful gothic architecture and I think a must to visit when one is in Lucca.
