We had already visited the cathedral and St Michelle in Lucca but this topped them both. Well worth a visit and the €3 entrance fee.

You can't miss the mosaics on the facade of this Basilica, and the interior is well worth a visit. There is a really huge font, and a beautiful set of frescoes, as well as an altar which was carved from a single piece of marble.

Lucca has quite a few magnificent structures. Here is another. It is located in the old town. My wife and I are all churches out. Worth a visit while in town

Stumbled across this amazing church as we did the Rampart Circular Walk, do as we did, and drop down and visit. Some of the Chapels are exquisite, and the alterpiece in the north west chape. The facade has a wonderfull mosaic outside, how it is...More

This is a great example of the use of several artistic devices to enhance the viewers experience. Great example of frescos, and the use of shading to give a sense of depth to many of the frescos. This was not the most glorious Interior, but...More

What a fantastic church, beautiful architecture and the tomb of an English Saxon King. Rare and beautiful. Whether you are religious or not this is a very spiritual place.
