Cathedral Of San Martino - Review

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

  • I enjoyed visiting this cathedral, but I must say Lucca's historical art tastes borders on the macabre. I'm sure there's a clear reason if I only dig into their past. The cathedral was 3€ when I visited, but I opted for the 9€ ticket which gives you access to the museum and the bell tower. It's the first cathedral we've been in with skulls everywhere. And I've never seen a church put Jesus in a golden birdcage, but that's essentially what they've done. I'm sure I'm angering some by describing it this way, but that's really how it feels. The museum continued the macabre collection with the most detailed heads of John the Baptist on a platter I've ever seen. It also houses an impressive set of gold accessories for the robe of Christ, as well as a crown. The bell tower is an easier climb than Giotto in Firenze, but has its own challenges. The first story is all stone, and very uneven, the railing is almost required. The final segment is a steel grate staircase, meaning you can see through the steps to far below. It's a challenge if you're weird with heights it could be difficult. If you are afraid of heights, I feel you won't be able to complete this climb. But the views at the top are nice if you can handle it. It was rather enjoyable.

  • A surprisingly lovely church. Arrived on a cold, but sunny, day in February and didn't mind paying the €3 entrance fee. It is an enormous building with some surprisingly delicate features. The ceiling is a vivid blue and the pillars to the roof are finer than one would expect. The wall paintings are not that special; but some of the sculpture work is very nicely done. despite the cold. As the sun shone through the stained glass windows, it produced a very pleasing effect. Easily spent 30 minutes in there,

  • Beautiful duomo, wonderful architecture. It is nice to be able to visit it without the insane amount of tourists that many other churches in Italy have. The ceilings are stunning. A must see is the marble tomb of Ilaria Del Carretto.

  • Interior very worth visiting .... tho outside in June 2018 the famous west front is 100% hidden by covered scaffolding.

  • Incredibile preserved Cathedral. Half an hour stroll inside is a value add experience.
