The Duomo (The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore) – one of the most magnificent architectural creations I have seen. The church exterior is decorated with the white, green and pink marble in very original Florentine style that can’t be found anywhere else, as far as I know. The Duomo had been built in 1296-1436.
The building is enormous. It occupies many blokes of the city and rises over all of the buildings as Gulliver surrounded by lilliputs. 4 million bricks were used in the construction.
Find people on the next pictures to get the scale of the place.
