One of the many great sights in Orvieto hilltown is the doumo or cathedral. Though the town is full of historic buildings, none can equal its superb Romanesque-Gothic cathedral. This cathedral was built in 1290 under the patronage of papacy. It is grand. The façade is decorated with statues of scenes from the bible, with mosaics and statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is a collection of stone, bronze and mosaic sculptures. Is one of the most beautiful sights imaginable.
