The Florence Cathedral (Florence, Italy)

Florence Cathedral

Though immense in its engineering accomplishments, standing within these grand halls causes one to marvel not at the human contribution, but the divine inspiration.  There are some places of worship that put one in mind of the perils of humanity and strike fear in the hearts of those who would stray from the paths of righteousness, but this cathedral is not one of them.  In contrast, its facade of green and white invite the passer by to look a little closer at the details and entice them to come into this joyful place which can only have been created in celebration of a greater, more generous power than humanity can wield.
