My Photos: Italy -- Tuscany -- Lucca -- Churches

Here are photos of just a few of the dozens of historic churches
within the walled city center of Lucca.

Chiesa di San Michele en Foro
Construction from 8th Century to 14th Century

Legend says that in the 1300s, the bells in this tower
could be heard in Pisa, about 12 miles away,
so the Doge of Pisa had this belltower shortened.





Basilica di San Frediano
1147 AD

Chiesa dei Santi Giovanni e Reparata
1187 AD

Chiesa di San Salvatore
9th Century AD

Basilica dei San Paolino e Donato
Rebuilt in the 1515 AD


This Madonna on Chiesa di San Michele en Foro, from 1480,
celebrated the end of the Plague.
