This beautiful medieval cathedral is called il Domo di Siena. It dates back to 1215 and is the highlight of Siena. I found it hard to capture the whole building so I decided to share a few pictures that highlight the stunning features of the captivating building.
I chose the top image because I love how the angel is standing high above as if he just came down from heaven. The angle of the picture and the thick clouds add to his majestic being.
I chose the second image mostly because I love the way the sky is reflected and distorted in the window, and because it give you a chance to see the colors and detail that was put into the making of this cathedral nearly 800 years ago. A powerful message to all who stand in her shadow.
Until next time,
