Another walled city for my collection, Lucca was a lovely afternoon’s stroll. I enjoyed the marble fronted churches, the roman circus turned into a piazza and lined with medieval houses, the art nouveau details (none of which I managed to photograph somehow) and the tower views! I’m too tired to type more so … enjoy the imagery.
I’m a sucker for book stalls – even if the books are in language I can’t read.
Formerly open arches turned into windows.
The Roman circus was turned into a piazza.
The curving street which forms the outside of the circus also reveals – a tower with trees on top!
They were planted to make this tower (the second highest in the city) taller than its rival family tower.
I think this may be the only image of Joseph actually holding and interacting with baby Jesus I have ever seen.
