Lucca is a little town rich of history and well known because of its numerous churches, it has even obtained its nick name ‘the town of the 100 churches’. Among all the marble treasures, which Lucca offers its visitors, the dome of San Martino, situated in the very heart of the centre, is certainly the most famous.
The dome was built in the 15th century and conserves various important operas: the frescos of Nicola Pisano, the Lord?’ supper of Tintoretto and the altar-painting of del Ghirlandaio. The most important is of course the tomb of Ilaria del Carretto who passed away with 29 years, wife of Mr.
Paolo Guinigi (see Guinigi tower and palazzo Guinigi) situated in the sacristy of the cathedral and it was sculptured by Jacopo della Quercia.
