Piazza Dei Duomo 2

part two of my tips with more pictures around

The Piazza Dei Duomo, also known as the Piazza Dei Miracoli, is a large square in the northern part of Pisa and is bounded by Via Contessa Matilde, Piazza Mannin, Via Andrea Pisano, Piazza Arcivescobado and Via Cardinal Maffi Prieto. this walled square is a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1987 and is about 8.87 hectares in size and is dominated by four great religious edifices: the Pisa Cathedral, the Pisa Baptistry, the Campanile, and the Camposanto Monumentale (Monumental Cemetery) plus the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo and Museo delle Sinopie. This piazza is the most famous attraction in Pisa, primaril due to the leaning tower, which is actually the belfry (campanile) of the Cathedral.

the square is open to the public but you need to buy tickets for entrance to the museums, the leaning tower itself and the camposanto and baptisty of which you can buy tickets per entry or a combination of all (but with a separate 18 euros entrance fee to the Leaning tower) the combined entrance ticket is 8 euros per person (although the cathedral is free entrance, you need to show a ticket to enter inside).

Piazza dei Miracoli – Ticket structure.

The Piazza dei Miracoli is the most popular attraction in Pisa and one of the most famous places in the world. Most tourists coming to spend their holidays in Tuscany visit the square and then they leave Pisa. Some of the finest gems of Western architecture are clustered on Pisa’s Piazza dei Miracoli. Our first sight of the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Duomo and the Baptistery is literally breathtaking, their white marble shining in the sunshine on a bed of emerald green lawn against a summer’s blue sky. We came here during the day to see the buildings’ white marble shine in the sunlight, and returned again at the evening when visitors are fewer and the buildings are beautifully floodlit.

To visit all the buildings at the square, keep the following ticket structure in mind:
Visiting the Cathedral is 2 Euro;
One extra entrance in a building: 5 Euro
Two extra entrances in a building: 6 Euro
Three extra entrances in a building: 8,50 Euro.
The Leaning Tower of Pisa is 15 Euro.

Piazza dei Miracoli – Wide walled area.

The Piazza dei Miracoli is situated right inside one of the oldest early medieval city walls, they were built in 1155 and perfectly preserved. The walls and the Gate, called Porta Nuova, are really beautiful, even though they often go unnoticed because of their more popular "company".

We entered this wide walled area located in the city of Pisa, and were told that it is recognized as an important center of European medieval art and one of the finest architectural complexes in the world. We also read that it is considered a sacred area by the Catholic Church. We walked our way around and noticed that this amazing square is dominated by 4 great religious edifices: the Pisa Cathedral, the Pisa Baptistry, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the Camposanto Monumentale (Monumental Cemetery).

Piazza dei Miracoli – Square of Miracles!

Let me be honest with you. Visiting the leaning Tower of Pisa was a bucket list destination for me. In the summer of 2015 I finally had my change of visiting it. But something I did not know was that the tower was part of a huge square with some other even more amazing buildings, called the Piazza dei Miracoli (Square of Miracles), formally known as Piazza del Duomo.

We travelled by car towards the city of Pisa and by coincidence we found a parking spot quite near the tower itself. We parked the car and saw the tower already leaning at the horizon. We walked towards it and all of a sudden we realized that we entered this huge square on which the Tower of Pisa was located. Like I said, this particular square is called the Square of Miracles. In this context I can definitely say that I understand why this name was given as the beauty of all the buildings compose an amazing harmonious whole.

Campo dei Miracoli

Campo dei Miracoli is the most popular place in Pisa since it contains the Leaning Tower among other things. Next to the tower are the Pisa Duomo, which dates from the 11th century, the Baptistry, and Campo Santo. The influence brought home by the city’s thriving international trade is evidenced on all these structures, which are architecturally unique and interesting. The Leaning Tower, which dates from 1350, actually looks a bit smaller in real life than what you would expect. You can climb up the worn steps in all 7 stories to the belfry at the top for about 18 Euros. The Duomo is very long and its interior is composed mainly of marble. Inside you can see paintings and sculptures in addition to some very old Byzantine-style icons. The Baptistry’s interior is somewhat identical to the Duomo’s, and although Campo Santo is very large, it doesn’t receive as much attention as the other buildings. If you do choose to visit it, then you can view some frescoes, which go back to the 1300s. When visiting Campo dei Miracoli, try to view more than just the tower itself because the cathedral is equally impressive.

Enter Through the West Gate

We prefer to approach the site from Piazza Manin on the west side of the Field of Miracles (Campo dei Miracoli) so that we remember that the Medici became rulers of Pisa in 1405 while Pisa declined as a Mediterranean power. As soon as one enters through the west wall, one sees on the left the four buildings of the complex . Equally one sees on the right about three blocks of vendors stalls selling miniature Leaning Towers and other items.

An Unusually Wide Grassy Field

Nowhere else in Europe have we seen such broadly spaced set of four religious buildings. At its center of a grassy field sits the west end of the 100 meter long Duomo with one of the first examples of a triple set of entry doors. In spite of this, the real entrance is by the south transept, via a bronze set by Bonanno Pisano in 1186. The other bronze doors were destroyed in a fire in1595 and were redone in 1602 by the workshop of Giambologna. The lower half of the west facade is topped by a set of seven very tall blind arcades, with the similar arcades continuing around the entire building.The upper half of the facade is graced by four levels of decreasingly long galleries of marble columns in typical Pisan style. Above the galleries are three statues, the central one done by yet another Pisano named Andrea.

Square of Miracles

The Piazza del Duomo ("Cathedral Square") is a wide, walled area at the heart of the city of Pisa, recognized as one of the main centers for medieval art in the world. Partly paved and partly grassed, it is dominated by four great religious edifices: the Duomo (cathedral), the Campanile (the cathedral's free standing bell tower), the Baptistry and the Camposanto.
It is otherwise known as Piazza dei Miracoli ("Square of Miracles").
In 1987 the whole square was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You can watch my 3 min 31 sec Video Pisa Piazza Miracoli out of my Youtube channel or here on VT.

Campo dei Miracoli - Portale di San Ranieri

%Would be almost funny if such an magnificent church has ordinary door. This massive main bronze door were made in the workshops of Giambologna, replacing the original doors destroyed in fire. The central door was in bronze and made by Bonanno Pisano while the other two were in wood. The bronze reliefs on the doors displaying the scenes from the Bible."

Campo Santo

The cathedral cemetary dates back to the 12th Century. it was almost completely destroyed in WWII but has since been mostly painstakingly restored. What has been lost is a large percentage of the frescos that once covered the walls.

Campo dei Miracoli - inside of the Duomo

The cathedral has a five-naved plan with a three-naved transept. The interior is faced with black and white marble, frescoed dome and has a gilded ceiling carrying the coat of arms of the Medici. The magnificent carved pulpit was made by Nicolo's Pisano son Giovanni and it represents one of the masterworks of medieval sculpture.
The cathedral contains the bones of Saint Ranieri, the patron saint of Pisa and the tomb of the Holy Roman Emperor Henry VII, carved by Tino da Camaino. The tomb was disassembled and changed position many times during the years for political reasons.
