Admire the magnificent Orvieto Cathedral (Duomo di Orvieto, Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta) in the town of Orvieto, in Italy.
The cathedral, set at Piazza Duomo, shows a façade with golden mosaics, a rose window, three grand bronze doors and other elements from 14th to the 20th century. Orvieto Cathedral took almost three centuries of construction, until its completion in 1591 in Italian Gothic style. Inside there are wonders including the fresco "Madonna Enthroned with Child" painted in 1425.
The town of Orvieto stands on a flat summit of a steep hill offering outstanding views, landscapes and underground passageways. Orvieto is also known for its white wine.
