Duomo tour
The heart of  art, history and tradition of Siena, the Duomo of Siena whose impressive mass rises in harmony with  the  square, constitutes one of the most illustrious examples of Romanesque-Gothic cathedrals in Italy. According to tradition, the current cathedral took the place of an early church dedicated to Mary, built around the XI century on the site of an earlier temple dedicated to Minerva.
