The Sunday Traveler~Italy, Part 4, Pisa

Pisa’s Piazza del Miracoli, 2002. The Sunday Traveler is revisiting this wonderful week here with you; getting hard copy prints onto my digital files at the same time…finally.

This wonderful piazza includes, in addition to the Tower, the Baptistery of St. John, built between 1152-1363.

A couple of close-ups for detail which is incredible to me given the tools available at that time.

The doors to the baptistery above show detail of stories of the life of St. John.

I remember time inside the cathedral as humbling in its beauty, architecture, and antiquity

Time around the famous Leaning Tower also brought forth feelings of awe. The tower, completed in 1372, was already leaning at the time of completion.  At the time of our visit they were not allowing entry to climb up due to some issues there seemed to have been regarding safety, so we just walked around it tilting our heads this way and that.

Thanks for traveling along today. Until next week; ciao.

    It’s amazing they could build such a Baptistry in those days, but then again, it apparently took them over 200 years to finish construction.
