Upon a large, luscious expanse of blossoming green, stands the mighty Duomo Pisa. The famous cathedral is the heart of The Square of Miracles, along with its iconic bell tower, Baptistery and cemetery. Visitors from all over the world journey to this square, in order to take pictures with the Leaning Tower of Pisa and to absorb the artistic splendour of Pisa’s most famous religious shrine.

The Duomo is a grand creation in the distinct, Pisan Romanesque style, carved into white and grey marble. Construction began in 1063 by the architect Buschetto, whose work was influenced by those of the Arab and African countries the Pisans had sailed to. This is reflected in the designs of the cathedral, with certain elements resembling what one would traditionally find in a mosque. This was the first building that was created upon the land that would later create the ‘Piazza dei Miracoli’. In 1595, a fire broke out and damaged the gates of the cathedral and these were fixed by a different school of architects.

The Cathedral was created in order to display the great amount of wealth amassed by the Pisans from their overseas voyages. Even today, the great walls of the Cathedral house numerous works of art, such as a mosaic likeness of St. John the Evangelist, the masterfully crafted church pulpit and works by Beccafumi and Andrea del Sarto. From the ceiling of the nave hangs an incense lamp, similar to the one that inspired Galileo to create his theory on the movement of a pendulum.  The bones of Pisa’s patron saint, St. Ranieri, rest within this church, along with those of the Holy Roman Emperor Henry VII. This Cathedral plays a central role in determining the start of the Pisan New Year, with the exact moment determined when a ray of sun seeps in through a window on the left and hits a spherically shaped marble just above the pulpit.

Today the grass surrounding the Duomo is littered with people from all over the world, all armed with their cameras and wonder in their eyes. No matter how large the crowd, there is always peace and tranquility within the church. Adjacent to the Leaning Tower, the Cathedral is far more serene than the environment around the Leaning Tower.  Taking a walk around the Cathedral is a feast for the eyes, with its stunning build and hidden artistic treasures in every nook and cranny. As you enter, you will see four rows of open galleries with stunning statues representing the Madonna and Child as well as the Four Evangelists. As you walk through, look up and marvel at the gorgeous fresco and gilded ceiling. Throughout the church, you will see intricately carved statues of saints and prophets, marble faces frozen eternally, as well as columns, altars and dazzling mosaic. You’ll be enchanted by the relics stored inside. Once one is done taking in the Cathedral, a hike up the Leaning Tower of Pisa is in order to complete the day.

  • You have to pick up a ticket from across the Piazza to enter the Cathedral.
  • You’ll be pleased to know that there’s no entrance fee for the Cathedral but getting an entry ticket from the museum across the street is required.
  • If you decide to pay the 18 Euros for the Tower, you can use the same ticket to enter the Cathedral.
