Il Duomo, Milan, Italy (One of my favorite places in Europe)
Il Duomo, Milan, Italy - Construction of the Cathedral in Milan, or Duomo di Milano, in Gothic style, started in 1386 by the archbishop Antonio da Saluzzo, on the site of the former cathedral Santa Maria Maggiore. In 1572 Saint Carlo Borromeo reconsecrated the church. The main spire, built in 1769, is 109 meters high and has on top a golden laminated statue of the Madonna. The main construction of the cathedral including the west facade were finished in 1813.
