Piazza del Duomo or Piazza dei Miracoli

Piazza del Duomo or Piazza dei Miracoli (the Square of Wonders) represents the most important cultural and artistic center of the city of Pisa. The square was enlisted among UNESCO world heritage sites in 1987. On this square, there are three main monuments that form the center of cultural and religious lives of inhabitants of Pisa: The Cathedral, the Baptistery and the Tower of Pisa.
However, visitors here may also see Campo Santo Monumentale (the Monumental Cemetery) and the Museum of Duomo.

The square assumed its final shape and form only in 19th century when architect Alessandro Gherardesca made a project, which included the demolition of certain surrounding buildings and the reconstruction of the main monuments. Pisa is a bit different compared to other Italian cities such as Duomo Square, which normally tends to be  the main square in Italian cities, is not located in the city center, but in the northern part of Pisa. This is due to the expansion of the city, as Pisa was once a very small medieval town, but also because this place was close to the archbishopry and built over an earlier church dedicated to the Holy Mary.

Interestingly enough, the main monuments on this square are arranged according to the zodiac sign Libra, where the Tower of Pisa represents the fulcrum.
