Pisa is located towards
the western area of Tuscany, and its origins date from as long as 3.000
years ago. During that time, a settlement started being built up at the
seaside and gave origin to what today is one of the most famous cities
of the world. This way, the historical richness of Pisa is amazing due
to its great amount of years and this can be observed in the buildings
which have remained through the pass of time and which show the different
époques through which the city has passed.
|Another one of Pisa's main
characteristics is its university, established in the first years of 1340
and world wide known due to its excellence. This way, Pisa is a city which
gives main importance to knowledge, science and arts, being up to the date
with modern life as well as maintaining some of the characteristics which
gave it shape through the pass of time.
The Leaning Tower is located
in the northwest area of Pisa, sharing one same area with other important
buildings. At this area, known as Campo dei Miracoli, next to the famous
Leaning Tower, there are other three great and unique buildings: the Camposanto
or Holy Field; the amazing Duomo or Cathedral of Pisa of 1000 years; and
the Baptistery or Battisterio of circular shape.
There are several other
buildings and interesting areas for visitors to meet in Pisa besides the
Campo dei Miracoli. Towards the south side of the city, tourists can visit
two interesting museums: the Museo delle Sinopie and the Museo dell'Opera,
offering the chance to observe original paintings and sculptures of famous
artists from many centuries ago.
