The most spectacular 360-degree views of the Cathedral of Milan

MILAN CATHEDRAL

Duomo di Milano

Daniel Esparza - published on 06/26/17

The website of the Milanese cathedral offers incredible views of the church.

The cathedral of Milan (il Duomo di Milano, in the original Italian) is not only one of the largest churches in the whole world, but is also considered by many as the most beautiful church in Italy (which is a lot to say!).

But the cathedral is also an exceptional case of Lombard architecture. That is, unlike most Italian churches, the Duomo di Milano is built in a radiant Gothic style, which makes it look instead like a typical French church. Double side aisles, for example, are extremely rare in Italian religious architecture.

With a nave about 150 meters in length, space for forty thousand faithful and the highest choir windows in the world (at least, that’s what the Milanese say), the cathedral of Milan is one of those churches one must visit, even if virtually.

Thank God, the cathedral website offers a series of 360-degree photographs that allow us to admire the beauty of this exceptional work of 14th-century architecture.
