  • You can pay for an individual ticket to the Baptistry, but I suggest that you buy a combined ticket!
  • It is located under the final spans of the choir of the city's cathedral, and bridges the difference in height with the square below. The façade, in Gothic style with the typical pattern of local marbles
  • Overwhelmingly beautiful.
  • Beautiful place with many artifacts to be seen!
  • כנסייה גותית ומיוחדת, יש ציורים על הרצפה ושימו לב בתקרה על פסלי הראשים מסתבר שהם של כל האפיפיורים מהראשון ועד המאה ה 12
