Duomo di Milano

The Duomo di Milano, is the grand cathedral located at the centre of Milan, Italy and sits the Archbishop of Milan. Conception and construction of the cathdral began in 1389 with layers upon layers of  additions (and removals) that took at least 500 years to complete. Napoleon Bonaparte ordered the completion of the facade in 1805 and the last gate was only unveiled in 1965 (now that is some deadline!)

Check out the amazing view of the city from the roof and the roof itself is pretty amazing! more photos of this elaborately detailed cathedral after the jump
