Overview
More
Founded in 1064 and consecrated with great pomp on September 26th 1118, the Cathedral was built in two stages, one by architect Buscheto, who created the original layout with the basilican body with four aisles and one nave, a transept with one nave and two aisles, and the dome on the cross vault, and one by Rainaldo, who extended the building and the façade. The building was not finally completed until the last quarter of the XII century, when Bonannoís bronze leaves were placed on the central door, which were later destroyed by the devastating fire of 1595, after which many of the destroyed works were replaced and a vast decorative plan was started.

It was a lot of people around the Leaning tower, but not too much. Great to see this monument, which is a must when in Pisa.

One of the best cathedral in Italy. Not only from outside, but inside is full of white marble carvings, and a lot of valuable treasures. It is a must to visit.

The cathedral is part of the piazza that also has the leaning tower of Pisa. It is actually the main building of the complex and is a beautiful historical marble building with intricate decorations inside of religious paintings, sculptures etc.

The Duomo is almost overlooked by most people who are much more interested in the Leaning Tower. It is fairly typical looking on the outside but I was impressed by the gold leaf covered ceiling of the interior. Masses are held four times on Sundays...More

As most of the cathedrals in Italia it’s quite big and looks great from outside, unfortunately there isn’t much of interest in the inside. In any case I still think it’s the best visit in Pisa and unexpectedly it’s free. Almost any regular church in...More

The Duomo is next to Pisa tower, can enter together with the same Pisa ticket. It's not very big and not very crowded, still worth a visit.

Hi John, Just to back up the other answers which are correct. The Duomo is free and the only ticket you cannot book in advance on its own. If you book for any other part of the tower complex you get a free, untimed, Duomo... More
