"Palazzo Mansi" Palazzo Mansi Tip by Jefie

Palazzo Mansi, Lucca: 4 reviews and 11 photos

  That's me, standing in front of Palazzo Mansi
by Jefie

Built towards the end of the 16th century, Palazzo Mansi is described as one of Lucca's most luxurious residences. The palazzo's walls were once decorated by frescoes, but these have unfortunately disappeared, leaving the facade rather bare. The main doors, featuring the Mansi's coat of arms, are quite impressive. The palazzo now houses a small museum, which we didn't get to visit since it's now closed on Sundays. It is said to feature the works of many local artists set in rooms that have been restored to their original appearance whenever it was possible to do so. I saw a picture online of the palazzo's amazing Baroque-style bridal room and was sorry to have missed this chance of seeing it with my own eyes!
