Lucca is also known as the city of a hundred churches for the largest number of religious buildings in the town center.
Lucca is also known as the "city of a hundred churches" for the large number of church buildings that date back to various different eras scattered within the city center. This name is true when you consider that, in addition to many official churches, every mansion of the city holds its own chapel. Currently, many religious buildings are desecrated, but there are still places of great interest. Among the most important churches to visit, include the Cathedral of St. Martin, the St. Michael's Church, the Basilica of St. Frediano, the Church of St. Paulinus.
Lucca is easily reached from our hotel in Camaiore following SP1, the old scenic route through the hills of Camaiore, or the highway.
