I have shared most everything about our trip so far, but I just felt like the Duomo Milan really deserved it’s own post! This is the official cathedral of Milan or technically speaking the seat of the Archbishop of Milan. We actually did get to see his residence while on our city tour which was really neat! Well, the outside anyways! It is a gothic style cathedral and reminded me a lot of the one that Andy and I visited in Köln. This cathedral, though, is made of marble! It was insanely beautiful!
The cathedral is fairly old, too, which is fun! There is actually a part of the old baptistery that was built in 335 that can be visited under the Cathedral! The ground breaking on the cathedral itself officially began in 1386 and it was worked on in different capacities through the 1900’s! It is one of the oldest Christian buildings in Europe, the 5th largest cathedral in the world, and the largest cathedral in Italy! St. Peter’s Basilica is bigger, however, it is supposedly not considered a cathedral.
Instead of putting up all the pictures I took I am just going to put up some of my favorites. If you care to see more of Milan Duomo you can click HERE to view the entire album on our photo share site.
