Overview

The baptistery itself dates from the end of the 14th Century though the oldest section of the building was begun at least 50 years earlier. The facade covers a good part of the apse of the Duomo on the right side. It has three naves and the font was designed by Jacopo della Quercia with possible - though unconfirmed - contributions from Donatello and Ghiberti.
