If Piazza del Campo is Siena's heart (and in some ways, also its stomach), Piazza del Duomo, a short distance away, is its brain, as the buildings that overlook it are dedicated to knowledge. Examples include the Spedale Santa Maria della Scala and, of course, the Duomo. One reaches the Duomo from the square by ascending a flight of steps that are almost a religious ritual in themselves. It is a truly beautiful place to enjoy the sunset.
