Baptistery of San Giovanni

The Baptistery of San Giovanni is a simple and austere monument, one of the most interesting examples of Italian sacred architecture as well as of the Romanesque style in town. Its solid structure is entirely made of squared travertine blocks originally belonging to other buildings. The lower sector of the Baptistery presents a square design while the higher sector, on which the dome and the quadrangular lantern lay, features an octagonal design.
