Isn't the tower a new addition from the late 19th century?

No, this tower is pure gothic.

Giotto, Pisano, Ghiberti and the other masters.

What can I say more?



This is the masterpiece of Ghiberti, who worked on it for 27 years, lavishing on it all the richness of his imagination, combined with a fine sense of composition and profound knowledge of the modeller's art. Michelangelo defined the door as fit to be the "gate of Paradise".

The door, a universally admired masterpiece, has ten panels depicting Biblical scenes. At the centre of the door at left is the self-portrait of Ghiberti. The door's original gilding has recently been recovered from beneath the patina formed over the centuries. It was badly damaged by Florence's flood in 1966 when the waters of the Arno reached a height of more than 180 cm. After restoration it was moved to the museum of the Cathedral and substituted by a copy.

A marvellous facace, and it floats serenely above the city. But:

- it is not very three dimensional, so it isn't all that rewarding to look at from every angle, as the greatest cathedrals are.
- the interior is quite dull apart from the decoration of the dome.
- it bugs me that the exterior of the dome looks unfinished.

So 8/10. I doubt that this would be regarded as one of the greatest cathedrals in Europe if it wasn't in one of the greatest artistic centres.
