Strolling through the elegant historic center, you are pleasantly surrounded by art galleries, boutiques, wine bars and enticing restaurants. Take the time to visit at least some of the many beautiful churches of Pietrasanta. Among these is the remarkable Cathedral of San Martino that overlooks the beautiful Piazza Duomo and preserves valuable works inside as well as the Bell Tower with an amazing helical staircase.
In the same square, we find the Municipal Theater and the Church of Sant'Agostino which today houses the Museum of Pierluigi Gherardi models. Inside, we find a collection of 700 plaster models of sculptures by Italian and international artists.
Not far from Piazza Duomo is the church of San Francesco with an adjoining convent. The sacred building was built in the 16th century by Franciscans. The convent still preserves its cloister and brick bell tower.
