Parish Church of San Lorenzo

A few kilometres from the centre of Minucciano is the small village of Pieve San Lorenzo, which takes its name from the church, a masterpiece of Romanesque architecture in the area. Built around 1000 and mentioned for the first time in a papal bull of 1148, it presents a "Romanesque" facade decorated with a seventeenth-century portal.

The peculiarity of this structure is certainly the octagonal bell tower with two rows of mullioned windows, dating back to the eleventh century, the only existing example in the entire Province of Lucca. Inside there are three naves marked by a double colonnade, there are several frescoes, including one representing the "Martyrdom of Santo Stefano".
