What travelers say:

Cathedral of the Virgin of Flowers (Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore), also known as the Virgin of the Virgin of Flowers Cathedral, Florence Cathedral. It is one of the five cathedrals in the world. Florence means the capital of flowers in Italian. The great poet Xu Zhimo translated it as "Yuan Lengcui", which was far more poetic and colourful than the other, "Florence", and more in keeping with the ancient city's temperament. Located in the historic center of Florence, Italy, the church complex consists of a cathedral, bell tower and baptismal hall. It was listed as part of the historical center of Florence in 1982 as a world cultural heritage

Introduction

The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is the main church of the Catholic Diocese of Florence. It is the third-largest cathedral in the world and a symbol of the Italian city. In 1982, the cathedral was listed as a World Heritage Site and part of the historical center of Florence. The outside of the church is matched with bright red, dark green, and white marble to form spectacular geometric designs that display the classical, elegant and free interpretation characteristic of the Renaissance era. It is both dramatic and beautiful from any angle.
