Saturday morning June 23rd, 2001.
Il Duomo of Siena was built in the 12th century and the exterior is striking for its use of black and white marble. This cathedral is so huge that it is difficult to get a photo of it and this 28mm wide-angle view has caused a lean to the campanile ( bell tower). The facade dates from the 13th century and was designed in part by Giovanni Pisano.
This view was taken from just inside a doorway of the Santissima Annunziata in the Piazza del Duomo.
