| Architectural + Interior + Art Design Photographer - an architectural photographer's brief encounters in life

A collection of anecdotes, stories & experiences told through the words of strangers and viewfinders, from Manchester architectural photographer Gu's work and travel.

Duomo di San Martino

We recently travelled to Lucca, Toscana, Italy for a shoot, that gave us a couple of hours exploring the city. 

Upon the ancient city wall, unmistakable terracotta tiles lined the sea of old town roofs, yet a skinny bell tower stands out like a thorn.

I was attracted to it.

The white colossal structure turned out to be the magnificent Lucca Cathedral, or Duomo di San Martino in Italian. The history and its surround is well worth a read, I shall leave the discovery to your own amusement.
