    What is misleadingly referred to as the "Baptistery" is first of all the Cathedral of Siena (Italian Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta) in Tuscany. The mighty Cathedral of the Assumption is the main church of the city. Today, the building, built of characteristic dark green and white marble, is one of the most important examples of Gothic architecture in Italy. The baptistery itself, the baptistery, is located in the basement of the cathedral and was built in 1316 as a support for the cathedral extension. The baptistery is similar in style to the cathedral and contains the showpiece, the hexagonal baptismal font with the Mamorciborium.

    Although the construction according to the old plans is never completed, it is very worth seeing.

    The cathedral has its own highlight komoot.de/highlight/192034!
    You will probably always find the cathedral on your tour first. Baptistery and cathedral are built with their backs to each other -> go around once. It's worth it.

    The queue to visit is in the summer months a bit longer and you have to expect longer waiting times. However, the building is also very interesting from the outside.
