Fodor's Review

Work began on the Duomo in the 11th century and continued into the 14th. The cathedral, dedicated to Saint Andrew, is the first church of the Middle Ages constructed entirely of marble. Most of it comes from the area (the white, light blue-gray, black, and red). The tremendous facade is a fascinating blend of Pisan Romanesque and Gothic influences. Note the human figures and animals on Corinthian capitals.
