Medieval Dome

Florence's famous cathedral, formally named Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore in Italian, appears prominently in the city's skyline. The historic basilica—one of the largest churchs in all of Italy—began construction over seven centuries ago. "You can feel the aura from the medieval era," remarked Your Shot photographer Stefanos Politis. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
