Built between the 11th and 16th centuries, Duomo di San Cristoforo rises above the Serchio Valley with its Romanesque campanile. Inside you can inspect a range of medieval details, from the red columns and lions of the 12th-century pulpit to an ancient fresco of St. Lucy. Outside, note the lions above the portal and the cryptic inscription on the facade. The hilltop cathedral also affords enviable views of the rooftops and undulating landscape. Listen to the ringing of the three bells, or the impressive sounds of the pipe organ that resonate through the limestone walls. Afterwards, take a peaceful stroll through the surrounding gardens. Our Barga road trip app makes visiting Duomo di San Cristoforo and other Barga attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
