The Cathedral was built on the highest point of town and it was planed to be much bigger than it appears today
In 1210 the construction of the church was started, but the lack of money finally reduced to cathedral to its size of today.
The fassade by Giovanni Pisanowas built 1284-99.
Get there in the morning, and the mosaique will shine like on my picture.
Directions: Right in the very centre of Siena
