Looking out over the River Bacchiglione in Padua, Italy is an ancient cathedral which holds a rich and illustrious history.
Padua Duomo, also referred to as Pauda Cathedral, is a landmark structure in the Duomo Piazza.
Though the building has been remodeled many times, its history dates to the fourth century.
One such reconstruction took place between the 16th and 18th centuries using a design by Michelangelo.
Though the final reconstruction of this structure took nearly 200 years, the façade has remained unfinished.
