June 21 in the cathedral you can see a phenomenon, conceived by architects for many centuries ago.
How to greet the summer solstice in the Cathedral in Florence
Astronomy played an important role in the construction of similar buildings, which is why June 21 a ray of sunlight passes through the dome and falls directly on the marble medallion on the floor of the cathedral.

Come to Florence that day, stand in the center of the medallion and made an unusual photo during such an interesting phenomenon :)

How to do?

1. Go to the most popular Florence sight - Basilica di Santa Maria Fiore.
2. Stand in the center of cathedral.
3. Take a photo of the medalion in the sunlshine.
