A beautiful cathedral perfect for great vacation pics! At leaset outside of the cathedral, inside, the cathedral is empty, dark and has only few ornaments, so it's definitively not worth to queue one...
2nd visit to the Cathedral, previous visit was 4 years ago, and it is equally as stunning the 2nd time round. The detail on the outside is incredibly intricate and the detail on Dante’s inferno insid...
Florence's landmark building is very distinctive, bright and gorgeous, and it took 175 years for the church to be built. When you arrive in Florence, be sure to come and see.
In front of the church is the San Giovanni Baptistry, where every baby born in Florence is said to receive baptism. It exists independently of the church, and because it looks like a church, it looks like a distant look.
The dome behind the church is the work of the talented architect Bernese Leysky. Inside the Church of Santa Maria del Fiore, there is a simple beauty.
After seeing St. Peter's Cathedral, other churches are dwarfed.
The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is the symbol of Florence. It is the tallest building in Florence and the fourth largest Catholic church in the world. It is not only a grand scale, but more importantly it is a representative building in the early Renaissance. It belongs to the kind of person who sees "wow" at first sight, not because of how tall it is, but because of the structure and color of the building itself, white granite and pink granite walls, orange domes. .
After entering the church, you can climb the dome from the small door next to it. Climbing the dome is a relatively difficult process. The walkway is very narrow and needs to turn many bends, but when you climb the top, you can suddenly open it. Overlooking the entire city of Florence. It can be seen that the urban pattern of Florence has not changed much since the Middle Ages. It is still a golden roof, gray or white walls and narrow streets, and bells of churches. The top of the church is not big, but the wind above it is not small, so pay attention to safety.
directly opposite the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is its annex, the Battistero di San Giovanni. The octagonal building is best known for its Golden Gate. Although it is a Golden Gate, it is actually yellow. The copper material, which has been vivid for more than 600 years, Michelangelo praised it as the "gate of heaven." There are ten reliefs on the Golden Gate, all of which are biblical stories.
Florence, Xu Zhimo's mouth, the birthplace of the European Renaissance, the birthplace of the opera...
This small town is not a nine-square grid, and a building may have far-reaching significance to history. . For example, in front of an inconspicuous church (Fig. 4), there are buried Michelangelo, Galileo and Dante...
Florence is like a treasure, with countless works of art and stories. A family symbolized by lions guards the city for three centuries. Its success and failure have deeply influenced the whole of Europe.
If time is sufficient, it is highly recommended to stay in Florence for a night or two. The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the jewellery shop on the Old Bridge, the Pitti Palace of the Medici family, and many world-famous art galleries... every place deserves to be savored. Time is really fast here!
Small Tip: Visiting the Uffizi Gallery in the high season must book tickets in the official website in advance. Going as early as possible, the number of people visiting is really super, and it takes a long time to change tickets. (closed on Monday)
The name of the Virgin Mary, the single name gives me unlimited yearning, this is my favorite church building in my limited cognition. I may not find a word in my life to describe your beauty. I naturally don't have to try to describe your beauty. I believe that everyone will look at it at the foot of it and will be conquered. Unique colors, grand scales, and most importantly, anywhere in the city, you can see the dome of Brunelleschi's design as you look up.
So ask me who is the most admired god of the Renaissance: Giotto, Angelique, Masaccio, Donatello, Pochettino, Renaissance three? No, No, No, but he.

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.
