Orvieto's Duomo was described by Pope Leo XIII as "the Golden Lily of Italian Cathedrals," adding that on the Day of Judgement it would float to Heaven carried by its own beauty. I'm not so sure about that, but it is a beautiful building. It is most famous for its fresco series by Luco Signorelli, The Last Judgement. But just as extraordinary, to me, were the bas relief sculptures on the facade by Maitani and his pupils. They depict episodes from the Old and New Testament in stunning detail.
