The works began in 1386. The Duomo is an exceptional example of Lombard Gothic architecture. The Cathedral was commissioned by Gian Galeazzo Visconti, and dedicated to Santa Maria Nascente. It is an immense mountain of marble shaped into statues, pinnacles, buttresses, rampant arches and pillars. The highest pinnacle is topped with a statue of the Virgin Mary, known as La Madonnina.
