  • Seems to be lost there in the middle of the streets of pisa but when you arrive you realize by the spacious and buildings that surround it

  • A shame to not enter the Church that is in the square. The square altogether is very nice and friendly as well as its interesting history.

  • Nice place, but it's not to fall over backwards. The façade is interesting but there fountain without water!

  • Beautiful Piazza with absolutely fab architecture. Must see. Close to the major attractions. No entry fee.
  • Surely it is the 2nd main Pisa square. The name came out because in the 2nd part of the 16th century, the square became the headquarter of the Order of Knights of St. Stephen. Now you can see the main house of the "Scuola Normale" University.
  • Good place to sit and enjoy the street sound tracks in evening
  • Beautiful buildings. Quiet and not too touristic.
  • Good place to hang out at night with friends.
