Padua Baptistry

Recommended
Adjoining the cathedral, the 12C baptistery has some interesting frescoes depicting scenes from the Bible, executed between 1376 and 1378 by Giusto de' Menabuoi. The cycle starts high in the cupola with the Creation, and concludes with the Apocalypse, taking in various Old and New Testament episodes along the way.
