View from west facade of Siena Duomo;
The impressive details of the Siena Duomo facades are an exciting blend of Gothic and Italian Romanesque styles which took many years to complete.
The facades were built in many different stages and the architecture is amazing as the beauty of this cathedral adorns the city of Siena. The lower part of the ornate facade dates from 1285-97 under Giovanni Pisano. The upper part was completed after 1376, inspired by the design of Orvieto Cathedral`s facade. Duomo, Siena, Italy Many tourists find this historic building to be one of the most impressive tourist attractions in the city.
