Milan's Mighty Duomo

Rome may be the cradle of Catholicism, but if you want to see the biggest cathedral in Italy, head to Milan and gaze at the Duomo. No wonder the Gothic extravaganza took almost 600 years to complete. Rome wasn't built in a day and Milan's Duomo wasn't built in a century.

Dripping Gothic style.

The severe interior.

Details, endless decoration on the exterior and tile work inside.

Vertical elements to make you meek in front of God.

Stained glass and a view of the back of the Duomo.

One more impression.
