The Pisa Cathedral

Another memorable Italian architectural masterpiece I saw was the Cathedral at Pisa. Beautiful façade, mostly made of white-grey-colored marble, the upper part of the façade has four rows of open arcades with columns. The cathedral was built in 1092, but most of its medieval art was destroyed in a major fire in 1595. The huge bronze doors that are there today replaced the original ones that were destroyed in the fire. The shots below are the west and southeast views of the cathedral.



The intricate details in the arches and columns are ‘shot’ worthy. No photography was permitted inside, as it was a Sunday and prayers were on inside.
