South side
Along the right side of the Cathedral stretch two rows of galleries, decorated by small columns of various shapes. The lower part is occupied by a continuous portico with shops, known as the Loggia dei Merciai, (Loggia of the Merchants), built in the 15th century. This included the Porta dei Mesi (Door of Months), named after the magnificent sculpted panels representing the months and nowadays housed in the Cathedral Museum. The unfinished bell tower was probably designed by Leon Battista Alberti. The semicircular apse with brickwork decorations is the work of Biagio Rossetti.
