Walking around this central square, one can find the Palace of the Scuola Normale of Pisa, the Church of S. Stefano and the Palace of the Orologio, where Count Ugolino della Gherardesca was imprisoned and condemned to die, as narrated by Dante in the Divine Comedy.

Due largely to the fine buildings on the square especially the Scuola Normale Superiore with its marble staircases.

On the walking tour ,which was well worth it because we were taken around Pisa itself and saw things that normally you would not see.Was taken into this square and was told this was part of Pisa University which is the best in all Italy.

This square is over rated. Europe has a lot to see. It's okay if you have less time and you miss it.

if you walk from the Piazza dei Miracoli, inside the town, towards the older parts of Pisa, you will pass this amazing piazza, it is not the usual form or shape, but it has amazing buildings worth the walk, and then you will find eateries...More

Good architecture but a bit of a let down, not registering on the Richter scale. Underwhelmed and unimpressed

This piazza doesn't have a lot going on as far as socializing, eating or shopping, but it is interesting historically. It was once the political center of Pisa and home to the Knights of the 1500's. It does have some really cool buildings.
