The Basilica of St. Martin in Lucca is a Roman Catholic cathedral dedicated to the Church of St. Martin in Tours in Lucca, Italy. It is the seat of the Archbishop Lucca. Bishop Anselm began construction in 1063. In the original structure, the towering columnar arcade and the apse of the exquisite bell tower remain. The nave and half of the door of the cathedral were rebuilt in Gothic style in the 14th century, while the western line was started in 1204 by Guido Bigarelli of Como, with a wide portico composed of three magnificent arches, above Three open spaces are decorated with sculpture galleries.
The cathedral is famous for the beautiful view from the front, but when you enter the cathedral, the ceiling and exquisite stained glass are very beautiful. It is different from gorgeous, it is just quiet and beautiful. The day we saw the stained glass was very good weather, so the light from outside made the stained glass look shiny.
