Porcari is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Lucca in the Italian region Tuscany, located about 50 kilometres (31 mi) west of Florence and about 8 kilometres (5 mi) east of Lucca.

In the Middle Ages it was a stage on the Via Francigena. It houses the church of St. Justus, dating to the 16th century but later mostly remade in neo-medieval style.
