Church of Ss Giovanni and Reparata

Battistero Ss Giovanni e Reparata-photo: www.comune.lucca.it

The church of SS. Giovanni and Reparata is mentioned for the first time in 754 in the testament of bishop Valprando.

The church is in the southern part of the ancient Roman town. It is a basilica with three aisles and a transept, covered by a wooden ceiling. Large part of the interior is covered with plaster and painted to imitate stone.

The façade is in white limestone, while the rest of the building consists mainly of sandstone or brickwork. The transept, almost entirely made of bricks, communicates directly with the large baptistery; the latter has a square plan.

The area occupied by church and baptistery has been recently object of an excavation campaign that has brought to light remains of early Christian buildings, the site can now be visited.
