The magnificent complex of the Cathedral of Siena, its Duomo, houses a series of some of the most important monuments of the European artistic panorama. With its more than one million visitors every year, the Cathedral without a doubt represents the fulcrum of the entire complex, while other significant elements include the Crypt, the Baptistery and the Museo dell'Opera, all part of the impressive mass formed by the "Duomo Vecchio" (Old Cathedral), and the "Duomo Nuovo" (New Cathedral). Visitors will travel along a memorable itinerary to the discovery of self and the truth of faith through culture and art, the result of more than a millennium of Western history.

The cathedral was built in the 13-14C. The cathedral is built of white marble with contrasting back marble or in some cases dark green Prato stone, which makes it very distinctive.

An amazingly beautiful cathedral and a joy every time I have ever been there. A typically Tuscan church of that era, it is the focal point of a great city and a must see for anyone who visits Siena. Strangely recommend.

Visited this incredible church as part of a tour of Tuscany with Walkabout Tours. The excellent guide explained the main points. Be sure to visit the little Chapel of Miracles within the main church and the Library

One of the treasures this cathedral offers to its visitor is the pavement of the interior of the cathedral. Unfortunately it is covered at times and the visitor has only his/her tears to find some relief...what a pity!! Couldn't it be covered by (plastic) glass?

This is a fascinating and impressive Duomo! The facade is a mixture of Gothic and Romanesque architecture. The facade definitely registers as Gothic, with the elaborate upper portion sculpture and decoration. However, the lower facade features the simpler Tuscan Romanesque style. It is a fascinating combination. I would recommend paying the small fee to tour inside. There are treasures everywhere... More

Worth a visit even if you've seen too many cathedrals in Europe. Lovely stone work and frescos. Some great masters, early work of Micheal Angelo are in display. Must go if in this beautiful town of Siena.
