Opening onto the piazza of the same name, the Cattedrale di San Martino is surrounded by beautiful buildings from various periods. Founded in the 6th century, it became episcopalism in the 8th century.

The cathedral was built in the south-eastern corner of the Roman town. The façade is linked, through the bell tower, to the old building of the Opera del Duomo and other parts of the cloister; along the south side are the sacristy and rectory; the apse portion was originally connected to the archbishop's residence through a series of buildings and gardens that were pulled down to make place for piazzale Arrigoni, the present day square.

Cathedral Of San Martino, Lucca Reviews - Write a Review

  • I like the facade of this church which is unique to this church also. The numerous pillars and arches in front makes it really amazing.

  • (3€ per entrare) Bellissima fuori ma anche dentro, da visitare assolutamente This beautiful gothic cathedral is a must-see in Lucca.With a stunning façade outside and also many great things to see inside, especially the ceiling (3€ to enter) unless you live in Lucca or in Tuscany.

  • Outstanding facade and sculpture on the narthex. The impressive interior is filled with beautiful works by Matteo Civitali, including the Tempietto del Volto Santo, and paintings by Giovanni Battista Paggi, Alessandro Allori, Fra Bartolomeo, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Passignano and Tintoretto amongst orhers. Don’t miss viewing Jacopo della Quercia’s beautiful Funerary Monument to Ilaria del Carretto (1406-08) in the Sacristy.

  • Lucca Cathedral is a typical Italian duomo internally but more of Gothic design than others we have visited, not unlike St. Michael's chiesa or others in Lucca but on a grander scale.

  • Friday 8 September 2017 to Friday 15 September 2017 This is a beautiful cathedral with excellent services for both Italians and tourists.
