    Church S Michele in Foro, Lucca, Italy

    Interior of the church is also very fascinating and interesting. There are precious works of art some from 12th, 14th and 15th century. There you could find a works of Filippino Lippi, Andrea della Robbia and other great artists.

    Church S Michele in Foro, Lucca, Italy

    The church of S. Michele in Foro is spectaculars and really impressive! The façade is higher then the roof and decorated by varied columns and rose-windows. Every single column is different; some are elaborately carved, some twisted and spiraling, others are like striped sweets. It looks like the whole church is built of the air, not of the stone. The church was built in 12th century over the ruins of a previous church and on the area of the ancient Forum of Roman Lucca. The great Archangel Michael crowns the top of the façade. I had to get back few times to see that church again and again.

    S. Michele in Foro lies in the ancient Roman's urban center. It reminds you the architecture of the Dom, but it is even bigger and georgeos. The romanic interior is lighter and very interesting.
