Address:
Pisa
Italy

Designed during the mid-16th century by Giorgio Vasari, the Piazza dei Cavalieri opens unexpectedly from Pisa's narrow backstreets and the central piazza in Pisa.

The curving Palazzo dei Cavalieri features elaborate busts of the Medici and is situated next to Pisa's the church of Santo Stefano dei Cavalieri. Across the square is the imposing Palazzo dell'Orologio, and to the east is the Borgo Stretto, one of Pisa's most impressive streets with a wide selection of speciality shops and cafés.

Pisa's Piazza dei Cavalieri was once the seat of the Ordine dei Cavalieri di Santo Stefano, (Order of the Knights of St. Stephen), which was an important religious and military institution in Pisa, created in order to defend the coastline from possible attacked by the Turks.
