Colourful 13th century mosaics illustrating the Last Judgment decorate the ceiling above the octagonal font, where many famous Florentines, including Dante, were baptised.
One of the oldest structures in Florence going back as long as the 4th Century. Its most known for its famous gates of paradise doors by Ghiberti and its ceiling mosaic.
Ghilberti's bronze baptistry doors, the 'doors of paradise', as Michaelangelo called them, are truly beautiful, as are the rest of the baptistry doors designed by Pisano.
Yes, they are replicas, but Ghiberti's doors are awesome. You will know why Michelangelo called them the 'doors to Paradise'.
The Baptistery, the oldest building in the city. The bronze esterior doors are a joy to behold and the mosaic celing inside even more so.
