European Vacation – September 16/19 – Pisa, Italy (Part 10) – Pisa Cathedral

Pisa Catheral (Cattedrale Metropolitana Primaziale di Santa Maria Assunta; Duomo di Pisa). Constructed from 1063-1092, it is built in the Pisan Romanesque style.

As per my previous post on the Field of Miracles, the Pisa Cathedral is one of the three main buildings contained in this religious complex. While we visited the Field of Miracles many times, we did not go into any of the buildings requiring payment of an admission fee. The cathedral entry was free, but you did need to book an entry time in the Ticket office. This visit turned out to be well worth the wait.

We spent our waiting time wandering around the site, looking for shade from the hot sun. Here are exterior photos.

Given the time frame when this cathedral was built, the exterior construction was impressive, but it was the interior that was truly unbelievable.

The artwork and details

The ornate ceilings

    1. Agreed. When you see the square lines from a distance, you think it is not very beautiful, but when you pause to study the details and the use of different marbles, it is a work of art. Thanks for reading Aiva. Allan
