“Beautiful to Gaze At”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

The facade of this church is quite unusual. For one thing, there is nothing behind most of the top of it - evidently the money ran out before the building was completed. But what a facade! Rows and rows of columns - unusual because each is different. You really can spend a good bit of time looking at it, so it is best to park yourself at one of the nearby cafes and study it over a few drinks. And since it is one of the main areas of town, it is a perfect spot for people watching. The square is usually very busy and there are often street musicians performing nearby. Spend some time here, day or night, and enjoy the heart of Lucca.

“A photo you must take”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

The very ornate stonework of this church looks marvellous in the sun and just has to be photographed. Don't worry about the stories that men are not allowed in churches in Italy in shorts. No problem even in Florence & Pisa Cathedrals. (Sometimes women with bare shoulders are invited to buy disposable shawls.)
