"The Duomo --> The Front Facade" Siena Favorite Tip by KiNyA

Siena General: 67 reviews and 112 photos

by KiNyA

Favorite thing: This facade was built in two parts: The doors in 1284-97 and the rest in 1382-90.

I hope you can see the statues in the picture (they are *small*). Many of them on the facade have been replaced by copies; the originals are in the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo.

The Sun Symbol is bigger and you can also see it in the picture. It represents a symbol of the risen Christ.

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
