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.

Amazing, it is just as it was 600 years ago. If you are in the region you must take time to visit this amazing church, it is cool, calm and very serene

A beautiful church dating from the days of the Longobards, this austerely beautiful church has two masterpieces, a pulpit and crucifix by Pisano. Not to be missed...

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.

We visited this church late in the afternoon and sat at the back for about 15 minutes whilst the evening mass concluded. They were a very welcoming congregation (later the spotlights were kindly turned on to better illuminate the pulpit) and the time waiting allowed...More
