The magnificent complex of the Cathedral of Siena, its Duomo, houses a series of some of the most important monuments of the European artistic panorama. With its more than one million visitors every year, the Cathedral without a doubt represents the fulcrum of the entire complex, while other significant elements include the Crypt, the Baptistery and the Museo dell'Opera, all part of the impressive mass formed by the "Duomo Vecchio" (Old Cathedral), and the "Duomo Nuovo" (New Cathedral). Visitors will travel along a memorable itinerary to the discovery of self and the truth of faith through culture and art, the result of more than a millennium of Western history.

Stunning architecture. I'd say it was the best building I have ever been into... not remotely bothered about all the God praising business but it was incredible all the same

Across from the cathedral there is ample seating to take in the exterior facade, like icing on a tiered wedding cake with layer upon layer of detail: statues, gargoyles, symbols, filigree, and stark white contrast with splashes of gold, black strips and pink marble. Inside,...More

This medieval church is beautiful. The exterior, rich in architectural detail, is compelling and as one enters inside the church, one is swept away by its beauty. It is rich in detail and takes time to absorb, but it is not overpowering as many other...More

The alternating marble in the construction of this cathedral is pretty interesting...as well as the "red marble" that is incorporated into the front façade of the building. The intricate designs and carvings make you truly appreciate the craftsmanship that went into this nearly 800 year-old...More

We had been to Rome and I thought I would tire of seeing cathedrals, but this one was so much different from St. Peter's in Rome. The design is just breathtaking.
