Pisa. Piazza dei Miracoli

Pisa. Piazza dei Miracoli

The Square of Pisa's Cathedral, commonly known as "Miracles Square" (or "Field of Miracles", called with this name because of the harmonic relationship of the several buildings located there), is in a decentralised position against the historic centre of the town.
The area, dedicated to the cult since the age of the Etruscans, represents the religious centre of the town and includes buildings made in the period between the 11th and the 14th centuries. In the square there are the S. Maria Maggiore's Cathedral (with the annexed bell-tower), the Baptistery e the Cemetery, which can be symbolically considered as the three main moments in man's life: birth (the Baptistery), life (the Cathedral), death (the Cemetery). Beside the Cathedral and the steeple tower, particularly important from the architectural point of view are the Baptistery and the Camposanto monumentale (Cemetery).

Such fabulous structures at the Piazza. Too bad all we usually see is the leaning tower.
