"The Baptistery (Battistero)" The Baptistery Tip by keeweechic

The Baptistery, Pisa: 88 reviews and 164 photos


The Baptistery (Battistero) is the largest of its kind in Italy. It was started in one style and finished in another; the first three tiers are Romanesque whilst the pinnacled layer supporting the unusual dome is Gothic and was added in the latter half of the 13th century.

The most striking feature of the interior is its simple design and lack of decoration.

Address: Piazza Duomo
