The Baptistery
The inside of Baptistery is subdivided into 16 slides that rise up towards as many sections of the dome separated by pink marble vaulting ribs. At ground level each side has a niche surmounted by two small balconies of the matron.
The interior is adorned with biblical frescoes and figures carved by Antelami showing the months and seasons.
