Great facade Apr 24, 2011
Although the façade of the church was done up in the twelfth to the fourteenth centuries (by the same architect who designed the baptistery in Pisa), a church has been in existence on the site since the eighth century. Inside the architecture is a mix of the Romanesque and Gothic. The chapels are completed to a high standard and the paintings and stained glass windows are well done. Overall, it’s not a bad church visit but the façade of the church is what impressed or intrigued me the most. The medieval renovations were obviously tacked on, and while this practice was performed upon many Italian churches, it is very evident with this church if you look at it from a near distance and at the right angle. What a great veneer though, and I think this church is one of the nicest in Lucca.
