Il Duomo, The Cathedral
Milano, Italy

The majestic cathedral of Milan, dedicated to "Maria Nascente" and today one of the world's largest churchs, was begun in the second hald of the 14th century - and the work went on for 5 centuries...
The true heart & religious symbol of the city, The world's 3rd largest church in terms of covered area - 157 meters in length and 92 meters in width at the transept - after only St. Peter's in the Vatican and the Seville Cathedral, Milan's Dumo is Italy's most perfect example of flamboyant Gothic. The construction was a long and extremely complex process..


........viewing around the Cathedral from left to right..clockwise....

PS...expanded dimension viewing is highly recommended...thanks

yes helton you are very right....the height up to the Madonnina...the gold statue of little Virgin Mary is 108.16 meters heigh....and the gate you see here
is the staircase going up high to the dome....no ..no... i prefer to use the
elevator until to the 3rd floor....it consisted 5 floors... so i have to climb up to
more floors :-)))
Thank you very much for your continous inspiring comment by bro/friend helton....
