This is the church next to the leaning tower of Pisa.  Our guide tried to convince us that the church and Battistry were both more interesting that the tower.

The church is interesting in that it is in the shape of a cross, if seen by air.  Did the architect imagine future helicopter tours?  Or was he hoping to catch God's eye?

The Battistry.  You are supposed to be able to stand alone in a "sweet spot" and sing and sound like a full choir.
Here is the open door to the leaning tower. .
