Il Duomo di Milano is the cathedral of Milan in Lombardy, Italy. Built from the late 14th well into the 19th century (and in a sense, never completed as work continues), the Duomo di Milano is one of the world’s largest churches, being second in size within Italy only to Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome, and being the second largest Gothic cathedral in the world, after the Cathedral of Seville in Spain. The interior height of its central nave is surpassed only by the remaining choir of Beauvais Cathedral in France
The roof is open to tourists (for a fee), which allows many a close-up view of some really spectacular sculpture that would otherwise be unappreciated.
Length: 157 metres (515 feet) – Height of spire: 106.5 metres (350 feet) – The Cathedral can hold 40,000 people
