      Siena Cathedral, or the Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption, is a 13th century church in Siena, it houses works by Donatello, Bernini, Michelangelo and Cimabue (among others) and is one of the main sights in the city, chances are that it is already on many itineraries of visitors to the city. Title: Procession (left-hand portion of border below Sacrifice of Isaac, inlaid-marble pavement, Siena Cathedral) Artist: After Domenico Beccafumi (Italian, Cortine in Valdibiana Montaperti – Siena) Date: –50 Medium: Pen and brown ink, brush and brown wash, over leadpoint or black chalk Dimensions: 3 3/4 x 16 7/8in. ( x cm).

    The cathedral is also famous for its extraordinarily rich pavement, a perfect realization of the phenomenon so beautifully described by the great scholar Émile Mâle in his book “The Gothic Image”. A huge panoply of the human experience, sacred and secular, stories from the Bible, civic emblems, the Ages of Man, etc., is represented in it.   The cathedral sits proudly in Siena, a beautiful medieval city in the heart of Tuscany. A quaint but stunning location, it is perhaps best recognised for its central piazza, Il Campo, that hosts the world ­renowned Palio run: a horse race run around the piazza two times every summer (you might have seen it in James Bond Quantum of Solace!).

    The Siena Cathedral (Duomo di Siena) is one Tuscany’s most beautiful churches, second perhaps only to Florence's Santa Maria del Fiore. The magnificent Gothic and Romanesque structure is hard to miss thanks to its tall spires, bold white-and-green stripes, and ornate facade/5(93).
