Duomo di San Cristoforo, Barga

4.8
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Barga
Built between the 11th and 16th centuries, Duomo di San Cristoforo 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.

  • Church very specific shapes. Unfortunately the day I was there there was fog because in the small square in front of it certainly enjoys a beautiful panorama. The lighting inside the Church costs 1 euro. Recommend a visit.

  • Beautiful Barga Cathedral side entrance, especially today, that was the old façade. Internally lighting is extra and remember to bring a 1 euro coin.

  • The 11th century cathedral with its Romanesque architecture sits at the topmost eleation of the historical center of the commune Barga, located strategically to provide a towering appearance. A walk up the historical center with cobblestone paved narrow roads, old mediaval looking houses, 19-20 th century cars is a treat indeed..
  • Beautiful village, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Apuan Alps and the Serchio valley
