Duomo Pisa, Pisa

4.6
#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Pisa
Architectural Building Religious Site
Standing tall in Pisa's most famous square, Duomo Pisa is a medieval cathedral dating to 1064. The church has a distinctive Pisan-Romanesque style with noticeable Byzantine influences. Admire the black-and-white marble interior, and look up at the gilded ceiling and the frescoed dome. The frescoes had to be redone after a fire in 1595 that ruined much of the cathedral's Renaissance artworks. The 14th-century mosaic in the apse survived the fire. Look for the sarcophagus of St. Ranieri, Pisa's patron saint. Make Duomo Pisa part of your personalized Pisa itinerary using our Pisa holiday planner.
