The Church of San Nicola is, just like many other religious establishments, first mentioned during the 11th century, having been built by the Augustinian monks, and its history links the venue with both the name of Giovanni Pisano – allegedly having supervised the extension of the church in the 14th century – and of the Medici family. The main highlight of this establishment refers to its bell tower, the second most renowned in Pisa after the Leaning Tower. This bell tower dates back to 1170 and it was allegedly designed by Diotisalvi who, for that matter, contributed to the erection of plenty other religious landmarks.
