Piazza dei Miracoli: The Duomo

Pisa’s Cathedral is the oldest of the four main buildings situated in the Piazza dei Miracoli. Started in 1064, it was the largest in Europe at the time and it’s design provided the blueprint for all subsequent Romanesque churches in Tuscany. It’s elliptical dome (another first of its kind) was added in 1380.
