Squares and neighborhoods

The artistic and historical heart of Pistoia, that encloses the most emblematic buildings of the city.

The Duomo square is dominated by the bell tower which was constructed around a pre-existing Longobard tower. Anyone who climbs its 67 metres and 200 steps is rewarded with a wonderful 360-degree view of the city.

The Cathedral of San Zeno is a remarkable building in the Pisan Romanesque style, dating back to 1000 A.D. it offers a wonderful vantage point of the Piazza.

Just next to the Cathedral, stands the Antico Palazzo dei Vescovi, the former residence of the Bishop of Pistoia, that now houses the Pistoia Cathedral’s Museum.

The 13th-century town hall, Palazzo Comunale, hosts the City Museum of antique art, answering all the questions you may have about this historic city.

Just to the side of the square and relatively hidden, you’ll find the Baptistery of San Giovanni in corte.
