On the facade of this church there is a beautiful mosaic. But inside the church you have also a lot to see. It is absolutely worth to visit.

Beaufilful basilica dating from the 13th century. Berlinghiero Berlinghieri designed it in a Byzantine/medieval style. lovely for a rest stop and photo opportunities.

We walked into this church which I feel is beautiful because of the mosaic carvings and paintings inside. But I loved sitting in the small piazza and sitting there staring at it each day/night

Full of interesting Mosaic, carvings, a huge font. Lots of history going back to the 13th century. I suppose when you are in Europe you tend to visit a lot of churches. This one is worth a visit

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

We were enchanted by the mosaic on the outside showing the Ascension of Jesus And returned the next day to explore inside. It’s a romanesque church with a beautiful sense of light and the interior arches lead the eye both upwards and toward the altar....More
