Photo: Decorative Columns Pisa Duomo Cathedral Tuscany Italy

Ornate and decorative columns adorn the interior of the Duomo cathedral in Pisa, which is a city and province in Tuscany. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is visited by thousands of tourists every year.

The Duomo (cathedral) in Pisa is the whole centre of one of the most famous tourist destinations in the whole of Italy. It is an ornate and elaborate building and it dates back to medieval times. The cathedral features strong marble columns, with decorative Corinthian style capitals, which line the interior.

Most of the cathedral was destroyed by a fire in 1595, but some parts of the cathedral survived and the columns were part of this because they are constructed of marble and won't burn in a fire. These columns are referred to as 'classical recycled columns', which means that their design is a classical one and the same design is used in these columns. This is so that the cathedral itself can still be traditional and have a classical clean look about it, but it can also be a representative of more medieval architecture and the two styles can be interlinked. ... continue below the picture...
