While this church does not appear (to me) to be it full original glory, it has an amazing interior. I had a little difficulty finding it, I would recommend a good detailed map.

Not only the beautiful facade, but the interior frescos are worth to see. From outside most probably you don't realize how big it is. Nice glass windows.

This is the sweetest church from the outside, but wow, when you enter it's enormous - and mostly empty. Historically, it is mentioned for the first time in 1211, then associated with a hospital. The current edifice was built between 1251 and 1300, commissioned by...More

If it rains in Pisa, look out for churches for a sit down and shelter. Santa Caterina is unusually bare and with no lighting but with a huge far away window it has a special atmosphere.

Chiesa di Santa Caterina d'Alessandria is a small church built in the 13th century and located about half a mile to the east of the Cathedral of Pisa. It has beautiful stained glass windows.

This is a very simplistic church that doesn't have much art... and is utterly dark, to the point the austel doesn't even show on the pictures i took from about 15 feet. Skip this.

This cathedral is absolutely outstanding and completely free to tourists. There is so much to see and take in its almost overwhelming. The amount of architecture, sculpture, art combined with religious artefacts is quite amazing.
