    Description :

    “Work on the cathedral was begun in 1064 under the direction of Buscheto (or Buschetto), originally believed to have been Greek, and now known to have been a native Pisan. His mortal remains rest in a simple urn placed behind the first arch on the lefthand side of the façade marked by a commemorative stone. The unfinished building was consecrated in 1118 by Pope Gelasius II. In the 12th century the façade, designed by Rainaldo, was erected, although construction went on for centuries more. The cathedral, the foremost monument in Pisan Romanesque style, exerted enormous influence on countless other architectural designs, not only in Pisa, but all over Tuscany and Sardinia as well.”
