Battistero (Baptistery) Review

Baptisms still happen (one Saturday and one Sunday during that month) in this baptistery, which has a simple pink-stone Romanesque exterior and an uplifting Gothic interior. The doors are richly decorated with figures, animals, and flowers, and inside, the building is adorned with stucco figures (probably carved by Antelami) showing the months and seasons. Early 14th-century frescoes depicting scenes from the life of Christ grace the walls.
