The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore


The cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence is a must-see site in this region. The cathedral is the fourth largest in Europe. The second part of its name "del Fiore" fleur de lys, represents the symbol of the city of Florence. From the outside, we admire its Gothic facade, the Baptistery, Campanile and Dome of the fifteenth century culminating at 115 meters from the architect Brunelleschi and from the inside numerous frescoes and mosaics of different periods are found.
