  • Constantine built it on a villa of the first century and the terme del II. that Sixtus V added the atrium and subsequently joined chapels to laticon a central enclosure with two sets of columns that held up the dome with the URN for baptisms

  • Can only recommend this church, very richly painted and well equipped and above all without admission. We were positively surprised in any case and recommend here a few minutes to plan.

  • At the Lateran for a Conference on migrations, I took the opportunity to revisit the wonderful Baptistry with a long history. Built on Roman bath was in the fourth century by Pope Sixtus V wanted in octagonal shape and structure still preserved. Was for a long time the only Baptistry in Rome and was taken as a model for others. The tub in the Center needed to be baptized by immersion. Has beautiful marble inlays in precious porphyry columns and floor, ceiling and it should be noted the Borromini's frieze on the outside wall of brick and the Interior frescoes depicting scenes from the life of Constantine, dating from the 17th century was often modernised, in the 10th century, for example, and often left in decay for removals of the Popes is also a parish of the most Holy Saviour and is chosen by many even of Anglican religion for baptism and sometimes also for Christian marriages, paying a sum you can have the privilege to baptize their children and get married in this charming, ancient, exclusive place. To counsel a visit always sightseeing before the road often enjoy only tourists accessible by public transport, with metro C dropping to Lodi and Lodi walk walk or what are you doing Maria terminus dahya 51

  • This baptistry was the first landmark I saw in Italy. Definitely a must-see
  • Inside this ancient baptistry, I was surprised that you can light electric candles and offer your prayers.
  • Very good place, but no explanation for tourist. Bring a guide !
  • Little gem tucked away from the far more impressive Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano; the baptistery and its adjacent church are built on previous places of worship. Very delicious and large transparent glass allow light passing through nearby buildings to illuminate suggestively. VERY NICE

  • It is a baptistery that still remains from the Foundation of the Basilica and annex thereto, taking advantage of some Roman baths. Remodeled during the first years of the paleocristianismo to octagonal (number of Christianity), when the baptism was by immersion. Its interior is paleocristiano (eight-column structure) and Baroque (coatings and sculptures) and baptisms are celebrated in ordinary way.
