Via Francigena Entry Point

You are here

Opened in October 2016 after the renovation of the former Executioner’s House and San Salvatore’s Bulwark, the Via Francigena Entry Point offers to tourists and pilgrims a set of touristic and cultural services so that they can discover the city of Lucca and Via Francigena.

The Entry Point is made of two units: the Museum, located in the amazing and recently renovated spaces of the Executioner’s House, offers a unique journey through space and time with the multimedia experience “Francigena Emotion. The Journey, the Faith, the Beauty”, and a series of multimedia interactive and educational paths about Lucca and the pilgrimage. Hospitality is situated inside Casermetta San Salvatore, in front of the museum, and is a place where it’s possible to rest and refresh before starting the walk – or the visit of Lucca – again. The casermetta has a cafè, a refreshment point and a relax area and it’s open everyday except Tuesday from 9am to 11pm.
