The Duomo in Orvieto

A masterpiece of Gothic architecture, the Duomo of Orvieto represents the decorative and pictorial soul that distinguishes the Italian 'floral' gothic from the more severe northern european Gothic. The dynamic three-part facade is entirely covered in mosaics and sculptures. Above the beautiful portal there is a large central rose window. The high pilasters that divide the portals are covered in elegant biblical reliefs.
