The Baptistery
Next to the Cathedral and the Baptistery is the square base Bell Tower built between 1284 and 1291, and is 63 meters high. The upper part has an elegant three-light window on each side; on top, there's a balustrade with four pendentives on the corners. The Baptistery, covered outside in pink Veronese marble, has on the roof, an elegant balustrade that joins the eight lanterns placed on the corners.
