  • Is one of the most beautiful monuments astigiati, consisting of three buildings. The Church dates back to the mid-400: the outside and inside of the Windows is adorned with a delicate terracotta frieze and a basoorilevo in marnmo as altar ... The baptistery, also known as the Rotunda, was built on the ruins of a small Roman temple; its dome rests on coonne to capital and the baptismal font. The cloister and part of the Priory were home to the Knights of St John of Jerusalem, then become Order Knights of Rhodes and finally Order Knights of Malta

  • In combined ticket purchased at Palazzo Mazzetti was included the view of the baptistery of St Peter and the archaeological museum, which is housed inside the building complex. The baptistery is red clay typical of Romanesque architecture in Northern Italy, the complex is kept well, the facility is located on Corso Alfieri in the city centre is very easy to reach. very interesting archaeological museum. The visit of all takes about an hour and in my opinion deserves.

  • Asti is one of the few cities that has managed to get through the story without any occupations and destructions. Founded in Roman times, was a crossroads between Italy and Gaul. Over the centuries, and with the advent of Christianity, what was probably a gate controlled by soldiers or military, became a baptistery to symbolize that "anyone who wanted to enter the city," had to first be baptized by embracing the faith Christian. At least half a century, has its premises at the side, a small museum where there are also a few mummies left by Napoleonic caravan of returning after the conquest of Egypt.
