map of the duomo square in pistoia

Piazza Duomo in Pistoia is one of the most beautiful square in Italy. It is characterized by civic and religious buildings: the San Zeno Cathedral, a Romanesque church in which a precious silver altar dedicated to the city's patron saint San Jacopo is kept; the Battistero, in front of the cathedral, an octagonal building with a beautiful façade of green and white marble bands; the Palazzo del Comune which was founded as the city's seat of government and still maintains this function today; the Palazzo dei Vescovi, a medieval building and bishop's palace; the Palazzo del Podestà the seat of the law court, in which the original stone table from which justice was administered can still be seen; the Torre di Catalina a fine example of the medieval tower-house.
