Campo dei Miracoli
The Duomo, built netween 1068 and 1118, is one of Italy's major monuments and contains one of its greatest scultures, the magnificent pulpit by Giovanni Pisano.
The Battistero (baptistery), built in the same Pisan Romanesque style as the cathedral. has another fine pulpit, sculptured in 1206 by Giovanni's father, Nicola.
The gleaming marble surfaces of the buildings are covered in arabesques and other ornamentation, as densely patterned as an oriental carpet.
The Campo Santo monumentale (monumental cemetery) lies at the northern edge of Piazza del Duomo (the Cathedral Square). It is a walled cemetery, which is claimed by many as the most beautiful cemetery in the world.
