Tuscany (Lucca) - San Michele detail of the facade
The Church of San Michele in Foro, slightly west of the centro storico, has a facade even more fanciful than the Duomo's. Inside the church there is a superb panel painting of Sts. Girolamo, Sebastian, Rocco, and Helen by Filippino Lipi (1457). At the top of the facade is the statue of San Michele.
