The Dome of Siena Cathedral

dome

1348

Construction is halted on the new nave of Siena Cathedral by the Black Death. Basic errors in the construction are already evident by now, however, and the work is never resumed. The outer walls, remains of this extension, can still be seen to the south of the Duomo. The floor of the uncompleted nave now serves as a parking lot and museum.
