Pisa is famous for its leaning tower, but there are also other special buildings on the Piazza dei Miracoli. It’s nice to know that Pisa was at sea in the middle ages and was an important port. Through the trade with Spain and North Africa, the city fell into a scientific and cultural momentum. For example, this revolution led to the construction of the famous leaning tower of Pisa. The city was defeated by Genoa in 1284 which meant the decline of the port city. A part of the River Arno was silting up, the city came to be more inland. Pisa has also suffered during the World War II, the main buildings spared. These buildings can be found on the Campo dei Miracoli (field of miracles).
