It is first from 795 and was rebuilt in 1070. The facade was first from the 13th century and was remade in 19th century. The Foro part is attributable to the square that once held the Roman forum. The style is called Pisa-Lucca Romanesque. The sculptures and arches outside are magnificent. They are of important people of the city, not saints. The series of intricate detail and carved stone is to behold. Saint Michele is on top with spread wings and is the patron saint protecting Lucca per tradition.
