Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Flower

Highly recommended
Built in the 13C and 14C to meet the needs of the growing city of Florence, Santa Maria del Fiore, one of the largest churches in the Christian world, evokes a golden rose offered by Pope Eugenius IV during its consecration in 1436. Started in 1296 by Arnolfo di Cambio, the completed building is a fine example of the Florentine Gothic style with its horizontal lines and large spaces. Arnolfo di Cambio was also responsible for the initial façade.
