High Above Florence

High Above Florence

I've mentioned before that the dome of the, uh, Duomo in Florence is the largest brick dome in the world. This is a slightly closer view of it taken at an almost face-to-face angle. The cross on the dome is actually taller than the campanile, which is where I took this photograph from. From here, it's easy to understand the dominance it has over the Florence skyline. The buildings below aren't even close.

But I think for a true sense of scale, a photo I took on the way up the campanile really shows it. Look at the size of the people at the bottom. There is no mistaking that this is the house of god in, what was then, the richest city in the world. Anything less would never do.

My other photographs of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore can be found in the gallery.
