  • This architectural complex is in my opinion the most important monument of Asti, a must see. Beautiful terracotta friezes, elegant on the outside, but it's the atmosphere inside this little gem that hypnotizes, kidnaps, forced to wander quietly between those simple medieval columns under that impressive game, looking for a glimpse into typical to photograph, then to give up because they are impossible to turn into images the sensations you feel ... you can only try to memorize them , turn them into sweet memory. Are interesting also some archaeological findings of the small museum which is located in nearby prior's House.

  • All travelers traveling appeal: If you decided to stop by at Asti you cannot miss the Baptistery. Absolutely lovely place where silence reigns almost abnormal. The medieval history of Tuff columns, the cloister, and the whole garden is a Pearl to the center of the city. Also worth visiting the Museum. And while walking in the cloister, imagine what you could try back in the days when there were no cars, and where there was inner peace and humility. Best time for a September trip in order to participate to other festivals. Greetings

  • A very well maintained and very well used especially with the addition of the paleontological museum upstairs. The only flaw, to visit the latter should you pay the ticket at Palazzo Mazzetti then in the Centre of almost 2 kilometers from there. It also lacks information on paper.
