Church of Sant'Alessandro Maggiore

Chiesa di Sant'Alessandro Maggiore

The Church of S. Alessandro Maggiore, in the centre of Lucca, is inside one of the insulae (islands) in the ancient net of Roman roads, within short distance of piazza S. Michele in Foro.

The church is the perfect prototype of the oldest Lucchese Romanesque architecture and so a bench mark in the study of Medieval Tuscan architecture.

The basilica, divided into three aisles and covered by cross vaults has a perfectly semicircular apse. The extremely simple façade is distinguished by its elegant portal and its fine masonry with bands of a slightly darker shade.
