  • It is a small chapel located in the Duomo of Milan. It is a feeling is narrow because crammed full of tourists. I do not know the detailed history and atmosphere.

  • When visiting the Duomo you must visit this Baptistry. It's more than a thousand years older than the Cathedral, belongs to the fourth century AD. The ancient Paleo-Christian artifact.

  • The first baptistery with bathtub and octagonal building in Christendom. That means the website and actually entering one cannot perceive the antiquity and early Christian community what it needs to have represented in Milan. Built in 378 by St. Ambrose, Bishop and Patron Saint of Milan, here you are baptized in 387 St. Augustine, doctor of the Church. Is 4 meters under the dome, was demolished at the time of construction of the Cathedral. The ticket should be done behind the Cathedral and is not given where both the input, nor advertised properly, even in my guide of the Cathedral, don't talk about it, and I bought it at the kiosk of the Cathedral itself. You access it via a turnstile which is located near one of the entrances, if you don't have the right ticket does not pass the turnstile. The place isn't huge, but it is of extraordinary importance for what he represented. Inside, apart from the octagonal tub, there are remnants of the baptistery and various artifacts from the ancient and more modern, related to the baptistery himself, exposed in some Windows (such as coins from all periods were found here). It lay halfway between the two main churches of Milan: the winter Cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore and the Cathedral of Santa Tecla. By the way is one of the key points of the route to St. Augustine, the Cathedral, because of the presence of this Baptistry and you can request with the appropriate credential, the stamp of the Cathedral of the ancient parish of Santa Tecla, the sacristy.
