Capannori, località Lammari, Via S. Cristoforo, 55013 Capannori LU
The church of San Cristoforo di Lammari in Capannori, constructed on the site of a 9th century building, unfortunately does not show any traces of the ancient structure. Coming back in to existence between the 9th and 12th centuries, the building was constructed on a Latin-cross plan with three naves and a semi-circular apse. The raising of the right side of the church and the construction of a bell-tower date back to a slightly more recent time.
In the 16th century the church was re-built to conform with the requirements of the Counter-Reformation Church: the vaulted ceilings were substituted with truss structures and new altars were added. The 18th century saw the reconstruction of the belfry, while 20th century renovation works restored the building's medieval appearance.
The church still features rich sculptural decoration and a series of basins placed on the crowning of the apse with ashlars carefully carved to accommodate ceramic forms.
