Although the cathedral is the main draw, the baptistry is a jewel that should be missed. Buy the tickets at the nearby museum across the plaza and enter into a remarkable space. It is huge inside--the whole building is one expansive interior. The outside is...More

What a beautiful Baptistery! The town is a small town, but what a beautiful jewel they have in the Baptistery and Cathedral. The work in both is unbelievably. How lucky they are to see that type of beauty everyday.

The architecture and paintings inside this bapistry are very interesting. The bapistry itself is pretty cool the way it's set up. Hard to believe special buildings were built just for this purpose. We had a guide which made it better, not sure it would have...More
