The Cathedral
Florence Travel GuideAs the city's skyline symbol, the cathedral is famous above all for its dome: Brunelleschi's Renaissance masterpiece, completed in 1436, created a double dome shell so that the dome is entirely self-supporting. Building started in 1296 on the site of the Roman basilica of Santa Reparata of which there are still visible remains. The existing neo-Gothic fašade was added in the 19th century. Covering a massive 3600 square meters, the frescoes inside the dome depict the Last Judgement.
