Piazza dei Miracoli: The Baptistry

Following on from my previous post which introduced the Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa, below are a couple of shots of the Baptistry. Construction of this part Romanesque and part Gothic building began in 1152, but it wasn’t finally completed till the 14th century after various additions and remodelling. I don’t know about you but it reminds me of a Papal Tiara to look at:
