Duomo di Pisa, Pisa

#1 of 51 in Historic Sites in Pisa
World heritage site · Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Architectural Building
Standing tall in Pisa's most famous square, Duomo di 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. Put Duomo di Pisa into our Pisa holiday planning tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Pisa.

  • Very busy place. Beautiful location. A check off my bucket list. Most locals were friendly in this location. Wished the other travelers were half as nice.
  • This is a very nice cathedral to visit at Pisa and it's the only place you can visit for free. We'll worth a visit.
