  • all in all a round is not bad, there are also interesting ideas but is so small that there is not much to see ... a baptistery is a baptistery afterall ...

  • You can pay a visit to the baptistery, but he doesn't deserve to go there on purpose. It's nothing special. 2 euros if you visit individually and 6 euros with the Torrazzo. Compared to that of Pisa there is no comparison.

  • Octagonal-plan presents the baptismal immediately following the entry on the left (at one time there was also the baptismal later destroyed in favor of a cistern containing the baptismal water). The peculiarity lies in the external facades that on one side are marble while the other mostly made from baked clay. Why? Simply because the marble was much and at that time it was also hard to carry (especially when the River was dry). Over time the baptistery was also used as a barn.

  • By looking a little stocky, the Cremona baptistery lacks the momentum that characterises the Torrazzo, giving the impression of an architecture a little seedy, also due to the fact that only half of the building was covered with marble, while the other half is the poor relation of the bricks with which he was raised. I wonder if this has been induced by changing economic or political circumstances, or if there was anything a symbolic wishes!
