There was a calming simplicity to the compositions in the Duomo that I found eased my senses, as compared to the nearby Basilica.
|So many colorful marbles! Dizzyingly spectacular mosaic work, even in 3-D!|
|"Watch out for the stairs, for there is a danger of falling." I am not sure why I find these icons so adorable.|
|Since this is the Cathedral, that must be the throne of the Bishop. I liked the addition of a contemporary design of the chairs beautifully added to the splendor of times past.|
|I took this snapshot since it reminds me of my niece Alexis, who has been flashing the two fingers of peace since birth.|
|This image of the pink stone lions is actually around the entrance to the Basilica, very nearby the Cathedrale. However, I had so many images in my last post, I was afraid to add more.|
|And finally another external view of the complex that includes the Basilica (the Cathedral is on my right, facing away from me here). It is so easy to be transported through time with architecture such as this.|
