Basilica Of San Frediano - Review
The church of San Frediano in Lucca is mentioned for the first time together with its monastery in a document dated 685.
The basilica lies in the northern part of Lucca between via Fillungo, the main road axis, and the walls; after the Duomo it is the largest Lucchese church complex.
The interior is divided into three aisles with a roof supported by visible trusses; on the sides are a number of chapels belonging to the gentry. Along the north side of the church is a large building that was until 1780 the convent of the Canonici Lateranensi.
The basilica has a wide façade in white limestone and a large mosaic at the top. In the apse end of the church is a massive bell tower crowned by dovetail merlons.

Basilica Of San Frediano, Lucca Reviews
The pin location isn't quite in the right place. It's about 50 meters west of the pin. However, a fantastic place to visit. Very interesting with some great information and history.
The upper part of the façade is striking with that golden mosaic, while the rest of the building looks rather common honestly. The interior of the church is nice, nothing striking nor outstanding, in my humble opinion, but yet worth a visit if you're near the amphitheater.
Impressive mosaic on the facade by Berlinghiero Berlinghieri from the early 13th century. Inside, this basilica is filled with outstanding artworks including the frescoes by Amico Aspertini in the Cappella Sant’Agostino from 1508-09, Jacopo della Quercia’s carved polyptych (1422), Masseo Civitali’s unique Assumption of the Virgin from the end of the 15th century in the Cappella della Santissimo Sacramento, and the extraordinary baptismal font carved by three different 12th-century sculptors amongst others.
