Romanesque Country Churches

Pieve San Gennaro capital
Pieve di Decimo
This is a 13th-century church located in the Serchio River Valley. Its bell tower and the remains of a medieval pulpit are particularly imposing.

Pieve di Brancoli
This is one of the most interesting examples of Romanesque art and architecture in Lucca.  It houses a wealth of fine works by the “Comacini” masters (stone masons and sculptors from the Como Lake area) such as the baptismal font and the splendid 13th-century pulpit.

Pieve di S. Gennaro
This is an extremely suggestive church which houses one of the few signed pulpits of the 12th century and an earthenware statue attributed to Leonardo da Vinci.

Pieve di S.Maria del Giudice
The striking limestone extracted from the mountains of Pisa exult the purity and beauty of this Romanesque church making it one of the most beautiful in the territory of Lucca.

Two churches can be visited in a half day tour.
Some of these churches can only be reached by mini bus.
