Duomo di Santa Stefano

Recommended
This cathedral is a harmonious combination of the Romanesque and Gothic styles. Don't miss the external circular pulpit, from which the Holy Girdle was presented to the crowds. However, it is the frescoes by Filippo Lippi on the lives of St John the Baptist and St Stephen which are particularly striking and are one of the most outstanding works by this painter. The most famous scene depicts Herod's Feast with Salome's Dance which was completed by Filippo's apprentice, Botticelli.
