Orvieto’s Cathedral – aka Duomo

This is such a beautiful building. Every trip I take pictures because it so inspires.

There​ are endless angles from the outside that are interesting because of the detail and stripes.

The organ is a restored Baroque era wonder. When it plays it fills the soul.

The gold in the San Brizio chapel picks up the light. This is the part of the chapel done by Fra Angelico. The majority was done 50 years later by Luca Signoreli.


This covers some of Signoreli’s work, but is expressive.

Ipolito Scalza’s pieta n my opinion rivals Michelangelo’s.

You can see why this is a major destination for tourists, and I haven’t even shown the exquisite Gothic facade!
