Baptistry of St. John

Baptistry of St. John, piazza dei Miracoli, Pisa
Still in Piazza dei Miracoli, facing the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, lies the Battistero di San Giovanni (Baptistry of St. John). The building has almost the same hight of the Tower of Pisa, it took as long to be built (1152-1363) and it is also slightly leaning.

After twelve days and twelve nights they finally shut down that damned generator. Livorno Daily Photo in Pisa will go on for twelve days as well, so we have another Pisan week before returning on home turf.

Quite a structure. Almost looks like a fancy wedding cake.

Hallelujah! Your quiet has returned!

Very unusual look to this baptistry. Actually, I don't mind at all to have another week of Pisa.

PS: Did you find the "Businessman" aka "That Guy" of Pisa? I'd like to see him.
