    This imposing stone structure perched on top of the highest point in Barga is the reward for a long climb from the front historical gate. As with moist Churches in Italy, the front of the Duomo is very plain, but their is a wide plaza in the front, and a small grassy area off to the south side that has a great panoramic view.

    Inside, the church is very simple with a stone pulpit with the front pillars supported by two lions. The interesting thing is that the pulpit is only decorated on the sides that face the congregation. Simple wooden pews line the church with some more modern chairs in the choir area.

    The Pascoli house-museum is close to the entry of our resort Il Chocco. Car has to be parked on the parking spot near pizzeria "Zi-Meo". Then you have to walk up to the hill through the metal gate. This museum keeps a lot of things related to famous local poet Giovanni Pascoli.

    If, like me, you like to learn about the legends and folklore of an area this is the place to go. It's important that you know the traditions and history of La Befana. We went as adults but the real magic of the place is for children, especially every January 6th.

    A fantastic idea for Barga with its links to Scotland, this little immaculately kept phone box originating from the UK and actually made in Scotland by Carron is now a well used tiny library.
    You can take books there which are no longer needed and you can pick one or two up as well.
    It was given to the people of Barga by an Italian Family living in Edinburgh who enjoyed coming to the area on holiday.

    Barga is what you can call a “hidden gem”; even though it’s described as one of the most beautiful little ancient towns of Italy, there aren’t many tourists. It’s a pearl you definitely should discover!

    Another beautiful church standing for over 400 years. This small, out-of-the way church dedicated to the Annunciation is the "home" to two wooden statues. An imposing front is on a small piazza that is shared with a small restaurant. It is good for a visit when it is open, but it won't be a long one. It would be more interesting to attend a service here.

    The name of this beautiful village is Sommacolonia not Semmacolonia!!! It is indeed a beautiful village a few short miles from Barga and well worth a visit. It is of interest for family of allied forces during WW2.
