This is a view on the Duomo from the Battistero.

They started building the Duomo in 1064, shortly after Pisa had beaten the Saracens at Palermo. This impressive church was going to be financed with the money they took along with them from Sicily. They wanted to build the church to celebrate their victory and show how powerful and rich Pisa was.
