"The Baptistry" Top 5 Page for this destination Baptistery - Battistero di San Giovanni Tip by Helga67

The beautiful circular building on the Piazza dei Miracoli is the Baptistry. It was a common Italian custom to erect the baptistry separate from the church, because the unbaptized were not allowed to go inside the church.
