In the first half of the 6th century, Frediano, Irish Bishop of Lucca, had a church build on this site. Present church is from XII century and represent early roman basilica. The facade of the church is decorated with a lavish thirteenth century golden mosaic. The church also houses a shrine to Santa Zita, Lucca's saint, whose mummified body could be seen in one of the chapels inside church. Interior has a lot of medieval masterpiece of arts. This is very interesting church and definitely worth a visit!
