The Facade

The Facade

Somehow, the Duomo in Florence - a fairly important building in the Catholic church - remained without a proper facade from 1588 to 1887. I'd love to see a painting of what it looked like before this facade was built but I haven't been able to find one. If you know of one, let me know.

While this neo-gothic design is certainly busy, it is certainly appropriate for the building and the site. The detail and craftsmanship is just amazing.

My other photographs of religious architecture can be found in the gallery.
