  • On the outside she's no different from so many others found in Italy, but inside is amazing to your beauty. Wonderful could be the best correct adjective. Not to mention on the outskirts.

  • Unlike the Duomo, the Baptistry is bald and essential internally in their architecture, whose decoration is entrusted primarily to external columns of the Lantern.

  • Beautiful monument that usually remains mostly closed. Before this placement on the square was inside the basilica. The current neo-Gothic reconstruction are original statues of the virtues in the external niches and the statue of St. John the Baptist within.
