Pisan Romanesque-style temple
The Church of San Michele in Foro is in the Piazza San Michele and rests on the site of the ancient Roman forum. It is a Pisan Romanesque-style temple and its construction began in the 11th century on the ruins of another church of the 8th century. The façade is built with large blocks of limestone and, oddly enough, the facade is considerably higher than the church itself. No one knows why, but it could be for financial reasons; maybe they ran out of money and the rest of thechurch remained at a lower height. It stands out because the top is a 13th century statue of the Archangel Michael and measures 4 meters high.
