Pieve of Santo Stefano

The Church

The pieve of Santo Stefano in Vallecchia was built on the side of the road leading from Pietrasanta to Seravezza, following the same track of the ancient Via Francigena; in the Middle Ages, it marked the southern boundary of the diocese of Luni, extending its jurisdiction on the whole territory of Seravezza. The edifice, whose plan can be referred to the 12th century, was largely reworked throughout the centuries; today, fragments of the original masonry can only be identified in the external base and, more extensively, on the apse.
