"baptisterium door" Battistero San Giovanni- Baptistry Tip by sphynxxs

  detail of baptisterium door

even if you don´t visit the baptisterium (paying extra entrance fees to each part of the cathedral complex makes sightseeing expenisive), have at least a closer look at the doors. They are full of interesting details, showing bliblical scenes - after all, at the time the baptisterium was built, many people were illiterate, so art explained the stories from the bible
