We found this the most beautiful church on our visit, along with the Duomo in Orvieto. It's an ancient place, simple and serene. The views of the surrounding mountains are majestic.

While in Barga we visited the historical Duomo. Beautiful stonework and alter. User frequently for Weddings and excellent views on old and Barga. Definitely worth a visit

The 11th century cathedral with its Romanesque architecture sits at the topmost eleation of the historical center of the commune Barga, located strategically to provide a towering appearance.
