    Description :

    “When plans for the baptistry were drawn up by Diotisalvi in 1152, both the architectural design and building materials were selected to harmonize with the style of the cathedral, at the time under construction a few years away. Work progressed slowly but steadily under the supervision of such masters as Nicola and Giovanni Pisano, and was finally completed towards the end of the 14th century.” It was begun along Romanesque lines and finished in a more ornate Gothic style.
