San Giovanni Baptistry

The San Giovanni Baptistry in Pistoia is located in the Dome Square of Pistoia, in front of the San Zeno Cathedral.

It was given its current shape between 1303 and 1361 and it’s considered one of the most important expressions of the tuscan gothic because it holds typical elements from Florence, Pisa and Siena.

The exterior of the baptistry is completely covered in black and green marble; the height of the monument is is about 40 meters.
