I missed the baptistry so went back the following day. Its at rhe rear of dumo downthe stairs. Im glad I did as it is wonderful in there. This chamber was used for the whole town back in the olden times. Its amost 600 years old..just beautiful.

When visiting Siena Cathedral, a visit to the adjacent Baptistry really is a 'must'. It is a beautiful building with an absolutely fascinating interior, the highlight of which is the great font which has artwork by some of the most highly acclaimed sculptors of its age. The walls of the baptistry are also inspirational with their intricate murals. The Baptistry has a totally different atmosphere from il Duomo but is equally as beautiful in its own way. It was originally the baptismal church for the whole of trhe town and carries a wealth of history.

you can pay to visit this place together with the cathedral. The visual is as beautiful as the cathedral and as the space is smaller and it´s not so easy to found (just behind the church) you feel more confortable to enjoy it.

The title says it. The font with its bas-relief by 3 of the most famous sculptors of the Italian Renaissance is a must-see and the beautiful Madonna would be worth a visit for itself, add to those the wonderful murals throughout and this is an undoubted gem.
