Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore

I've been sketching the Duomo lately.  Also known as The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, it's the grandest building in Florence. If you're within a 500 metres away from it, you can already sense its grandeur.  Standing at about 115m, it dwarves the nearby buildings which then reminds you how small you are. :)  Completed in 1436, this basilica is one of Italy's biggest, and is the dome is the largest ever constructed on this planet.
