San Michele and the Diamond

This post is also available in: Italian

San Michele and the Diamond is the legend that I tell you in this Blog

The statue on top of the facade of the homonymous church.

The statue of about 4 meters with a crusader globe in the left hand stands out

on the square below

According to legend, San Michele winning over the Dragon seems like

a diamond on his finger

Whoever could see its glitter would have earned heaven.

I have never seen it but if you come to Lucca try to look for it with your eyes and

you will have paradise
