Known as Piazza del Duomo, it is one of the most outstanding architectural projects in the world. In 1987 the square was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It contains four buildings: the Cathedral, the Leaning Tower, the Baptistery and the Monumental Cemetery.
It is the most eccentric and notable structure in Pisa. The tower was begun in 1170 but started leaning immediately. Its main function was a bell tower, in fact it has seven bells, one for each musical note. Climb to the top if you want to have the most exciting views of Piazza dei Miracoli.
Begun in 1093 and enlarged in 1118, it is an example of Pisan Romanesque architecture. The Cathedral is a very elaborate structure: on the façade there are five stages of arches and the interior decorated with mosaics combining different styles and influences.
This marble building is almost as tall as the Leaning Tower. It is in fact the largest baptistery in Italy with a circumference of about 100 metres. It contains a big octagonal font and a pulpit. It is famous for its perfect acoustics.
