Church Tourist Spot
Built between the 11th and 16th centuries, Duomo (Cathedral) of Barga rises above the Serchio Valley with its Romanesque campanile. Inside you can inspect a range of medieval details, from the red columns and lions of the 12th-century pulpit to an ancient fresco of St. Lucy. Outside, note the lions above the portal and the cryptic inscription on the facade. The hilltop cathedral also affords enviable views of the rooftops and undulating landscape. Listen to the ringing of the three bells, or the impressive sounds of the pipe organ that resonate through the limestone walls. Afterwards, take a peaceful stroll through the surrounding gardens. Make Duomo (Cathedral) of Barga a part of your Barga vacation plans using our Barga trip builder.
