The amazing pavement of the Siena cathedral

There are a lot of reasons to go to Siena. Visiting the duomo is just one of them. But, did you realize that a trip to see the just the pavement of the cathedral alone is well worth the travel to Siena? Well, it definitely is.

I was lucky enough to visit Siena last month before the Covid restrictions clamped down any chance of travel. Parts of the astounding pavement were on view, which isn’t always the case. Here are pictures from that visit.

The photos above and below show one area depicting the Massacre of the Innocents. The gruesome story is told in amazing detail on the floor of this outstanding church.
