In & around the Duomo

The Duomo in Florence is incredible. It is something that is unbelievably remarkable inside and out. The whole time I found myself wondering how something like this could be conceived. Construction begun in 1296 and completed in 1436. That’s 140 years in its construction! I feel somewhat sad that the original architect was never able to see the end product.

Good job Amolfo di Cambio!
