Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta is an amazing architectural masterpiece of the 16th century. You will see its chic doors with bronze panels, a facade with six loggias, stately arches and marble columns and the main value of the temple, the famous pulpit of Giovanni Pisano.
Campo Santo cemetery, where the famous Pisans rest. You will see the high loggias, hear where and under what circumstances Bishop Ubaldo Lanfranca brought the land here in the XII century.
The bell tower is the most famous building of the square.
