"The church of San Michele in Foro." Lucca Favorite Tip by Maurizioago

Lucca General: 47 reviews and 80 photos


Favorite thing: This church was built between the 11th and the 14th century. It is located where the Roman forum was.

Its richly sculpted facade is bigger than the rest of the chuch, because money ran out before it was completed.

At the top of the church you can see a statue of archangel Michael. It has movable wings. So that if the wind is strong they can be retracted.

A legent say that if you catch a green glimmer from the stature of the angel, in a peculiar condition of light you? ll have good luck.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
