Florences Duomo Complex keeps the glory of Renaissance alive even today. Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral is the fourth largest church in the world. Moreover, the entire complex (including the Baptistery and Giotto's bell tower) is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Being a vast and intricate structure, the Duomo Complex was not a work of one man. The construction of the cathedral began at the end of the 13th century under the leadership of Arnolfo di Cambio. However, Filippo Brunelleschi's Duomo which overtakes most of the exterior came into existence in the 15th century. The statues of both architects are standing proudly on the right side of the Cathedral.
Two long centuries to complete a construction! Imagine that! As if that wasn't long enough, it took until the 19th century to have it entirely decorated. We must admit, though, all that work was worth it.
