This beautiful cathedral with a Pisan Romanesque-style façade in green and white marble is a masterpiece of balance, in which the austere Pisan style has been replaced with charming imaginative features. In the Gothic interior, don't miss the tempietto housing the Volto Santo, a copy of a miraculous figure of Christ whose arrival at Lucca is celebrated with the luminaria di Santa Croce, and the superb tomb of Ilaria del Carretto, the wife of Paolo Guinigi, who died in 1405.
