The political centre in medieval Pisa

Piazza dei Cavalieri (Knights’ Square) is one of the most beautiful landmarks of Pisa, however not as popular as Piazza dei Miracoli, home of the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. However, Piazza dei Cavalieri is still an important part of the city, being a center of education.

Here stands the Scuola Normale di Pisa, a school founded in 1810 as a branch of the École Normale Supérieure of Paris. Today, the school belongs to the Pisa University System. Other attractions in Piazza dei Cavalieri include Palazzo dell'Orologio, and Chiesa di Santo Stefano.
