Pisa's centre, and pride, is the Piazza del Duomo: 'Cathedral Square', where there's great architecture on all four sides – the Leaning Tower, the Duomo, the Baptistry and the Camposanto. Despite the tower's fame, it's really just the bell tower to the Duomo or cathedral, which was originally intended to be the main attraction. If the tower didn't lean so impressively it might still be the main attraction, with its many white pillars and arches and domed roof. Inside it's just as grand – both from an artistic and architectural perspective.
