Photographer's Note

Patterns in the restored part of Lucca Cathedral. The huge restoration project is about one third complete and one can only imagine the splendour of this place when it is finished.

'Lucca Cathedral was consecrated in 1070 by Pope Alexander II, formerly the Bishop of Lucca.
The impetus for replacing the smaller Church of St. Martin with a grand cathedral is traditonally the arrival of the miraculous Volto Santo (Holy Face of Lucca).
The west facade was decorated in 1204 and the portico in 1233, and the interior was rebuilt in the 14th and 15th centuries.' (Sacred Destinations)
