Lucca - Cattedrale S. Martino

Lucca - Cattedrale S. Martino
Secondo la tradizione, il duomo fu fondato da San Frediano nel VI secolo, poi riedificato da Anselmo da Baggio, vescovo della città, nel 1060 ed infine rimaneggiato tra il XII e il XIII secolo.
Alla facciata principale, orientata verso ovest, è addossato il portico-nartece aperto sulla piazza da tre grandi arcate di cui una più stretta per la vicinanza del preesistente campanile.
Alla destra della facciata si eleva la torre campanaria a base quadrangolare, che si apre verso l'esterno con cinque ordini di polifore (dal basso, rispettivamente monofore, bifore, trifore e due piani con quadrifore); il coronamento superiore è costituito da merli ghibellini. All'interno del campanile, vi è un concerto di sette campane in Mi♭3 calante, delle quali alcune dei secoli XIII-XIV.

I wonder why the place in front of the cathedral is so deserted.
I know this quite differently...

Now this brings back memories... Among numerous visits to Lucca, attending a Palm Sunday mass at this cathedral stands out. When the community sang, it sounded better than many choirs. When the choir sang, it sounded like angels. I envy you Italians for your sense of music.
