Imposing and rich in history, is the symbol of the city and an obligatory stop while visiting Milan.
Considered to be sixth among the largest Catholic churches in the world, Milan's Duomo is characterized by a memorable facade adorned by white marble, completed only in 1800, almost 500 years after the beginning of its construction.
Imagined (and strongly desired) by Gian Galeazzo Visconti, lord of Milan at the time, the Cathedral rises up on a sacred place, which at the beginning housed Minerva temple.
Just enter the church, or stop and admire the 145 spiers, to appreciate the greatness of this work. Its gates, made of bronze and adorned by high relief, give access to the interior, with its 5 wide aisles.
Walking towards the altar and looking around you will be fascinated by stained glass windows, telling different scenes. At certain times of the day it will be possible to turn around the main altar and admire the huge windows of the apse. Below are the sarcophagi of Saint Carlo Borromeo and Gian Giacomo De’Medici.
Under the main altar there is a small church and the entrance to the Cathedral’s Treasure, where ancient jewles, goblets of solid gold and miters inlaid with precious jewels, are guarded.
The most bold can, through a lift or a stairway, reach the upper part of the Duomo of Milan, from which you can enjoy a priceless view.
