With a cathedral as old and magnificent as this one the history connected is too much to share in a blog post. One of the interesting side notes we heard is that the sanctuary was designed to be able to hold 40,000 parishioners at one time. It is the largest Gothic cathedral and the second largest Catholic cathedral in the world.
The inside of Milan’s Cathedral is expansive but rather dark. There are five large naves divided by 52 pillars – one for each week of the year – that support the cross vaulted ceiling.
We arrived too late to the Duomo to investigate the Crypt and Treasury.
How are your plans for Easter shaping up? Although I’m feeling better I’m still not at a productive state. I’ll be taking it easy for a few more days.
