The Santa Maria del Fiore Church in Florence


Santa Maria del Fiore, whose construction was designed by Arnolfo di Cambio, is the third largest church in the world (after St. Peter's in Rome, Saint Paul in London) and the largest in Europe at the time of its completion in ' 400. Cathedral "is a word that derives from the Latin" domus ", meaning" House ". The Cathedral is the House of God and his people. The dome of the Cathedral is Brunelleschi's work while the façade was completed in the late 17th century. Made of marble in neo-Gothic style and was built only between 1871 and 1887. Until that time the unfinished façade was created in pietraforte. Inside you can admire one of the largest fresco cycles in the world: 3600 square feet of paintings, executed between 1572-1579 by Giorgio Vasari and Federico Zuccari.
