Spend your Christmas and New Year's Eve in one of the best hotels in Pisa
The Cathedral of Pisa is dedicated to Virgin Mary (S. Maria Assunta) and is the main building of Piazza dei Miracoli.
It was begun in 1064 and completed three hundreds years later.

The church houses an exceptional masterpiece of Gothic sculpture, the pulpit by Giovanni Pisano, which luckily managed to keep despite the serious fire in 1595.
