Things to see
The never ending construction finally come to an end in 1965 when the last gate was inaugurated.. although today there are still few blocks that should become statues!
The Duomo’s roof hides many treasures: beautiful pinnacles and spires, gorgeous flying buttresses. Luckily it is possible to visit it, tourists can enjoy also a beautiful view over the city.
Centuries of work had left many unique artworks inside the Duomo. Among the numerous statues the one dedicated to St Bartholomew is probably the most beautiful. Stunning are the three altars by Pellegrino Pellegrini and the magnificent organ, the biggest one in Italy!
The Duomo has always be the center of the city life, the inhabitants of Milan look at the Madonnina every time that they want to know the weather forecast: if it is possible to see it from a distance that means that it is a beautiful day!
