  • CHURCH of SANTA CATERINA, KNOWN AS the CHURCH of the SIGARAIES REVIVED in LUCCA, a PLACE of art and SOUL, BORROMINIANO STYLE that was in danger of COLLAPSE and REMAINED CLOSED for 40 YEARS the Church of Santa Caterina, also known as the Church of the SIGARAIES an example of religious Baroque construction, was rebuilt and recovered thanks to awareness campaign of the FAI in collaboration between the Superintendency of Cultural heritage of Lucca and the Ministry of cultural property and activities. The result of the consolidation and restructuring was exceptional. Particular is your structure with the entrance at the corner of Via Vittorio Emanuelle, and your oval shape, in perfect borrominiano style, and the angular solution on the facade. The Church has in the attic of the dome a unique feature: a fresco suspended. The work of Lorenzo Castellotti and represents SANTA CATARINA BETWEEN ANGELS, is set on a pedestal under arrest for nails, nailed to the wood in the attic and allowing a glimpse into a SKY of PUTTI and FRESCOES by SANTI. Worth visiting

  • Is open a few days a year, but it is a Baroque jewel with a unique Dome, on which you can climb via stairs. Really unique architecture!
