Magnificent Milan Cathedral

This week we travel to Milan, Italy, to feature the Catholic Cathedral in the heart of this great city. This white marble gothic beauty took six centuries to complete. It is adorned with over 3,000 statues and is the second largest cathedral in Italy after St. Peter’s in Rome. The Milan Cathedral is famous for a number of reasons, not the least of which is its size; it can hold 35,000 people. It boasts a sundial placed in 1768 that is so precise, the city clocks are set by it, and it also houses one of the nails used in the crucifixion of Christ. The nail is displayed publicly each year for three days.
