It didn't look like too much from the outside, but once inside, though very badly lit, I marveled at the beautiful one of the most famous pulpits in the world. The masterpiece by Giovanni Pisano is a beautiful example of Gothic pulpit with incredible decorations,...More

Pulpits, for instance, in Pisa and Siena, are famous. The same family did the one in this church -- and yet almost no one visits! But the advantage is that you will have time to study it and enjoy it from many angles.

You cannot visit Pistoia and miss this church. Not because this church is special, it is beautiful but nothing extraordinary. What is incredibly beautiful and not to be missed is the Pulpit by Giovanni Pisano. It is incredible, more beautiful then the better known one...More

Put your 50c in the slot and watch this unassuming little church light up. And in the middle is an extraordinary carved marble pulpit, in many ways superior to the one in Pisa cathedral. A must see if you visit Pistoia.

The Saint Andrea church is one of those true jewels that you visit while traveling and then always remember. The carved marble pulpit by Pisano is an architectural masterpiece without parallel ( except for the Bernini pulpit in the Vaticano). Simply magnificent. Many other masterpiece...More

This is one of the hidden gems in Italy. Up close, the pulpit--the main sculpture too see--looks remarkable. It has been carved from one piece of marble.
