    I decide to visit the Cathedral inside, after many years since your last visit. The ticket costs €3 Cathedral, but with only x €7 you can also see the Cathedral Museum (inside the Church of San Gottardo in Corte), and the archaeological area (which includes the baptistery of San Giovanni alle fonti and Santa Tecla). Inside the Cathedral go down a small spiral staircase and leads to early Christian baptistery. I did not know of its existence, but only a foundation of Santa Tecla. For anything advertised, and therefore known by few, is worth a visit. Attention xche ' with the sole Cathedral ticket access not allowed.

    The origins of the early Christian baptistery of San Giovanni alle Fonti date back to 386 when Ambrose, Bishop of Milan, built to replace the old one and place it next to the apse of the new basilica "Maior" of Santa Tecla. It is here that the Easter Day 387 the same Ambrose baptized Augustine of Hippo or Saint Augustine disciple. The area with the remains of the baptistery is very impressive and exciting, supported by signs with explanations. For further information we recommend visiting the Museum of the Duomo, which through educational panels and various archaeological is able to provide all the information you need.
