Basilica of San Frediano, Lucca
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Churches, Tourist Spots
Stop into Basilica of San Frediano, known for its enormous golden 13th-century mosaic of Christ's ascension, designed by Berlinghiero Berlinghier in a Byzantine style. The inside of the cathedral is carved entirely of white marble, and houses Roman capitals repurposed from the Roman amphitheater nearby. The focal point, though, is the enormous 12th-century baptismal font, the Fonte Lustrale, decorated with biblical scenes by medieval Lombardi sculptors. Outside, you can enjoy dinner at one of the cafes along with views of the cathedral's glittering facade.

Herrlich: außen das große Mosaik der „Himmelfahrt Christi“.At the beginning of the 12th century with the choir to West instead of East, due to the then-new city walls. The side walls were later increased. Wonderfully: outside the large mosaic of "Ascension of Christ".show original
