Milan Duomo, July 2009

Milan's cathedral or Duomo was started in 1386 and built over the course of five centuries before the final gate was completed in 1965.  It is built in the gothic style and is the fourth largest church in the world, including five interior aisles, three altars and a spectacular facade clad in marble.  One of the best ways to approach it is along the collonaded walkway to the right of the square.  That way, you get tantalising glimpses of the facade through the columns, and then get to be dazzled by the full impact of the facade when you finally step through into the square. 

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister. Click herefor
