Worth a Visit

The Cathedral is easily reached, apart from market day on a Saturday when you can lose your bearings. Not a vast church but well worth a look for architecture and art works.

A very beautiful and interesting Duomo. Well worth a visit with interesting medieval frescoes, crypts and silver alter. However some later intrusions sometimes ruin the atmosphere but still worth a visit.

This grand church / Duomo is a spectacular one with its outside packed layered alternating dark and white marble colors surmounted with marble boxes in classic design, really beautiful. Entrance through massive sculptured doors into a gilt filled interior packed with masterpieces. Must see when in Pistoia. ...

Dropped by fate into this lovely city we sought relief from the heat of the sun and headed here like so many churches in Italy this is so beautiful but much more calm than many. If only there was more of it.!

One of the main historical building on the Duomo square of Pistoia, with one of the highest bell tower around Italy. It has a Romanic style façade with other different style inside. During Christmas time the Nativity scene is built in the crypt by a local craftsman, each year it’s made of a specific material (bamboo, wire, straw, jute,….) with... More

The Duomo trio (the church, the baptistery and the bell tower) are definitely worth visiting; you have to make sure you see Pisano's pulpit at San'Andrea and the terracottas of della Robbia at the Ospedale. Pistoia is a wonderful place to visit, so much calmer than Florence with great art from both the medieval and the Renaissance periods. San Zeno,... More
