Milan Duomo Facade II

Standing at the entrance of the Milan Duomo and peering straight up is a very giddy experience. The entire facade looms over you, and its sheer scale makes it seem as if you are stepping into a fortress. In your head, dramatic music reaches a crescendo as you approach, and you imagine yourself as a modern day Aragon, striding into a miniature Minas Tirith to claim your rightful throne.

Okay, I’m done channeling my inner Tolkien.
