  • you buy a joint ticket for this and the Diocesan Museum (average). the pomp of christening in such a building must have been amazing  more »
  • Seldom opened, the exhibition has proved tempting for visiting this site. Interior has been much restored over the centuries, but beautiful Gothic façade (included in another building).

  • The baptistery is located in the Church of Saint John the Baptist, which was built in the 11st century, and because many times rebuilt and reconstructed baptistery, as would be embedded in its façade, because immediately becomes incomprehensible and that it is not a separate building, as for example in Florence and Parma. Inside the baptistery preserved an ancient fresco "baptism of Christ". Admission is free, because the view is worth it.

  • Beautiful Romanesque building. Inside there is the small Museo delle Pietre Dure, with medieval sculptures. Overall it is rather bare: there are only three altars, two decorated with altarpieces and Baroque statues, the other with a 14th century crucifix.

  • 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!
