The area of Campo dei Miracoli or the Piazza dei Miracoli (Field of Miracles) houses the impressive white marbled structure of the city cathedral or Duomo and its circular baptistery or Battistero and the bell tower that is better known as the Leaning Tower. The buildings combine Gothic, Moorish and Romanesque architecture and are the main sights of the city.
