Pisa Off The Beaten Path: 104 reviews and 203 photos
The church of San Nicola was first mentioned at the end of 11th century, together with the annexed convent. Between the end of 13th and the begining of 14th century the church was enlarged by the Augustinians, it is not sure but perhaps under the design of Giovanni Pisano.
The facade features pilaster strips, blind arches and lozenges, and is decorated with intarsia. A covered passage conects the church to the Torre De Cantone and from it to the Palazzo delle Vedove. It was used by Medici noble ladies to reach the church without walking in the streets. The church has octagonal bell tower dating probably from 1170. It seems the bell tower is work of architect Diotisalvi.
