  • Welcome to the outstanding Piazza dei Miracoli -- the Square of Miracles. This square is

  • highly regarded as one of the most beautiful of its kind and now that you're here, I'm

  • sure you can understand why. The piazza is also known as Piazza del Duomo

  • - the Cathedral Square -- which is actually its real name. However, in 1910, the Italian

  • writer and poet Gabriele d'Annunzio described the square in one of his books. He wrote;

  • "The Ardea rotated over the sky of Christ, over the meadow of Miracles." Ever since,

  • the piazza is more known as the Piazza dei Miracoli.

  • The piazza and its buildings were constructed between the 11th and the 15th century. During

  • this period, Pisa was one of the most dominant cities in Italy and the new piazza needed

  • to reflect their power. The city of Pisa spent huge amounts of money to construct a new religious

  • complex. As the new complex was supposed to convey power and influence, they weren't satisfied

  • with only building a new cathedral. No, instead they built no less than four amazing structures;

  • the Duomo Cathedral, the Baptistry, the Camposanto Cemetery and the bell tower, also known as

  • the Leaning Tower. The result is what you have in front of you today -- one of the greatest

  • squares ever built. What many people don't realize is that there

  • is also a symbolic meaning in the different buildings. Together, they all represent the

  • different periods in life. The baptistery represents the start of life; birth. The Cathedral

  • represents the life while the cemetery represents death.

  • Piazza dei Miracoli was rightfully so declared a World Heritage Site in 1987; not only for

  • its beauty but also as it a way of recognizing it as one of the main centers for medieval

  • art in the world. Even though many tourists visit the place, it almost never feels too

  • crowded. The plain green fields together with the majestic white buildings always project

  • an aura of peace and serenity. It's easy to understand why Gabriele d'Annunzio described

  • this place as the meadow of Miracles.
