Duomo Pisa, Pisa

(4.6/5 based on 3,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A peace of white art !!! I just wish i could paint there how is life around and how people are enjoying  more »
  • Entered the Cathedral and was turned over the size. And that we were there early in the season and before Easter also did his to and make the experience even nicer. Very little that disturbed visual impressions. The only thing I regretted was that I had not put me more into the story in advance. It comes by the way the most we looked at a week in Tuscany. So tips to both myself and others. Read up on a part of what you know you will experience when you are on the trip.

  • What beautiful paintings they have up in the cathedral it made me feel like I was in an art gallery. We almost didn't go in but I'm so glad we did !!!
  • I attend daily mass here. It's a great place of God although soldiers at the gate are racists. I don't know why italians are so racist!!
  • Another impressive landmark in Pisa. The tower is a must-see because it leans. The cathedral is a must-see because it's stunning. Don't miss it.
  • Stupendously beautiful. The Duomo Pisa is definitely a stand out of cathedrals in Italy. Words really can't do it justice so take a look when you're on-site for the tower.
  • I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT IT'S SO AWESOME!
