Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo) is the main and most famous square of Milan. At the heart of the square sits the undisputed queen of the city, the Duomo. This is the central and breath-taking cathedral of Milan.
But apart from the impressive cathedral, this main square shows other treasures. In the center of the square you can see the statue of the King of Italy, riding on his horse. The statue of the rider is Vittorio Emanuele II, who was the first king of the United Kingdom of Italy in the 19th century. This king, Vittorio Emanuele II, fought to unite Italy and in 1861 was proclaimed King of united Italy.
