Of course we visited the famous Duomo, a huge cathedral in Milan. It was worked on for six centuries and Napoleon was even crowned King of Italy there. It’s enormous and very elaborate. We visited it some years ago with my son and his family when they lived in Switzerland.

A view at night.

One of the most beautiful floors I have ever seen.

We went to the top where you can get a closeup look at statues on top of columns.

In the back of the cathedral you can see a copy of the statue of Mary that is on the highest column of the church.

I saw this statue of Mary at another church. Her halo was made of electric light bulbs. The silver hearts interested me. I’m guessing that they represent answered prayers.
