Battistero di San Giovanni

Christian Site in Pistoia

Across the square from the Cattedrale di San Zeno is this 14th-century octagonal baptistry, elegantly banded in green-and-white marble to a design by Andrea Pisano. An ornate square marble font and soaring dome enliven the otherwise bare, red-brick interior. Buy tickets here for the Capella di San Jacopo and bell tower, both in the Cattedrale di San Zeno.
