A city of Miracoli
Unlike Florence, which is highly commercialized, Pisa is serene and laid-back. Known all over the world for its leaning tower (Torre pendente) and the Campo dei Miracoli, Pisa still stays the least-known of the Italian cities. A Rennaisance city that was once a wealthy seaport, it welcomes today tourists from all over the world with its Pisan-Romanesque style churches, the Campo Santo (the most beautiful cemetery in the world), trattorias, boutiques, and an atmosphere of cultured bohemia.

The Cathedral of Pisa stands at the heart of the Piazza del Duomo (also known as Piazza dei Miracoli). The Duomo is known also as the Primatial, and is dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta (St. Mary of the Assumption).
The Duomo is one of Pisa’s most popular attractions, mainly by location, in the immediate vicinity to the leaning tower. Inside the Duomo, however, there are valuable artworks by Giambologna, Della Robbia, and other major artists.
The Duomo was designed by Busketo in 1064, and is considered the most distinctive example of the Pisan Romanesque style of architecture. The grey marble facade was built by Rainaldo.
