Duomo Façade Detail in Florence, Italy

Although the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Flower was finished in 1436, this gorgeous façade of pink, green and white marble was not started for another 440 years and was completed in 1887. There are so many ornate features spread across its 124 foot width that it is hard to describe them all. The most beautiful ones include three rose windows, three tympanum mosaics over the doors and the row of 12 apostle statues.
