Church of Saint Dominic

Interesting
Saint Dominic is buried here in a fine sarcophagus by Nicola Pisano (1267), while the crowning with the statues is a later work by Niccolo dell'Arca finished by Michelangelo in 1494. Bas-reliefs by Pisano illustrate the life and the miracles of Saint Dominic. The cornice is decorated with a motif celebrating the creation, symbolised by putti (sky), garlands (earth) and dolphins (sea).
