What could be more perfect than naming your Cathedral, St Mary of the Flower (Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore).
The thing I love most about this beautiful Gothic Cathedral besides her sheer majesty are her exquisite colors of green and rose. She was our touchstone, our landmark to remind us where we were at all times, in the greater scheme of things. By the end our week of walking and discovering we really got to figure out the lay of this land quite nicely.
Every time we found ourselves coming around the corner to face her, she took our breath away and we got to photograph her almost single day for good measure. She’s absolutely stunning! I am in love with Gothic buildings.
Thank you beautiful old girl for holding our direction all week.
