What people are saying:

San Michele in Foro is a Roman Catholic church located in Lucca, Tuscany in central Italy, built on the ancient Roman Forum (Foro). It was the seat of Consiglio Maggiore, the most important council of the commune until 1370. It is dedicated to the Archangel Michael. The church was first mentioned in 795. It was rebuilt by Pope Alexander II after 1070. It is worth noting that the facade was built in the 13th century and contains a large number of sculptures and inlays, many of which were rebuilt in the 19th century. There are a series of blind areas in the lower part, the center of which contains the main entrance. The upper part is made of a large amount of iron material to resist wind, and has a small loggia with four steps. On the top of the mountain, there are two other angels, beside it is the 4-meter-long statue of St. Michael the Archangel.
