  • Milan Cathedral, called Duomo di Milano in Italian, is a vast Gothic-style cathedral, located in the heart of #Milan. It is 157 meters ft (515 ft) long and 92 meters (302 ft) wide. It can house up to 40.000 people. Duomo di Milano is one of the largest Catholic churches in the world.
The site where the Cathedral is currently situated was previously occupied by the Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio. In 838 the Basilica di Santa Tecla was founded next to the first church, but in 1075 a fire devastated both buildings and a few centuries later, the Duomo was established in the same location.

The construction of Milan Cathedral began in 1386, which coincided with Gian Galeazzo Visconti coming into power. The purpose of this impressive construction was to modernize the area and to celebrate the expansion of the Visconti territory.
The Cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete. During this time, various architects, sculptors and artists contributed to the famous construction program known as the “Fabbrica del Duomo”. The result was an impressive and unique piece of architecture, which merged the international Gothic style with the Lombard Romanesque style.
The structure was covered with white and pink marble from the Candoglia quarry in Val D’Ossola. The Cathedral’s roof is covered in openwork pinnacles and spires crowned with sculptures that overlook the city. 
On the highest spire of the temple is the Madonnina, a gilded bronze statue, which was sculpted by Giuseppe Perego in 1774. Over the years it has become the symbol of Milan. 📸: @dorpell, @uluwatu80, @jan9.0, @takemyhearteverywhere, @kavalaomer, @sennarelax, @_milu90, @saaggo, @sebastien.nagy, @sarashakeel #architectanddesign

  • Levante la mano quién de ustedes ya visitó el #DuomoDiMilano. Sabian que esta obra arquitectónica se construyó en 1386 😱. La entrada es gratuita y solamente se paga si se quiere acceder a la cripta o a la terraza ‼️
