The construction of Battistero, the largest baptistery in Italy, started in 1152 but unsurprisingly considering its size wasn’t finished until 1363. Take in the imposing 55 m (180 ft) building with its circumference of 107 m (352 ft). Observe how the building leans 0.6 degrees towards Pisa's cathedral. It was built on the same unstable sand as the famous leaning tower. The grand exterior architecture transitions from Romanesque style in the lower section to Gothic in the higher section. Inside the baptistery are stained-glass windows and a bronze statue of Saint John the Baptist. On two of the pillars, look for the signature of Diotisalvi, who designed the building.

The visit was very brief because there were no queues and look particularly nothing. Fairly narrow hand lifting to enfilade.
Te deja impresionado por fuera en el conjunto y dentro está un poco desangelado... Lo único que merece la pena es subir a la galería superior y hacer una foto desde la ventana que da a la catedral.

The only thing that is worthwhile is climb to the upper gallery and make a photo from the window overlooking the Cathedral. But eye, you can't do selfie because it has a gate and a cuadraito pa meter mobile... If I had known this, I would have not entered. PD. Enclosed the photo of which I speak.
