Photo Album — Pisa, Italy

                 The Leaning Tower of Pisa and its Piazza dei Miracoli (Field of Miracles) is another spectacular religious sight.  Three buildings, the Baptistry, the Duomo, and the Campanile (Leaning Tower) occupy a broad grassy plain.  Each building would be a centerpiece in its own right, but to have them all together in one location is wonderful.  Despite the commercialism across the street, this spot is awe-inspiring.

            The Baptistry is best known for its pulpit and its acoustics.


 Check out the panels on the door of the Duomo, facing the tower, depicting the life of Christ and also its pulpit, inside.


           The Leaning Tower has been aslant since its construction began in 1174. Finally, engineers have halted the settling and it is once more possible to climb the tower. Reservations are essential in the high season.
