Beautiful if you happen to hear the woman test the echo effect of the Baptistry. Try and spend a bit more time reflecting in here.

This was one of the buildings in the Piazza del Duomo in Pisa next to the Tower of Pisa.

If you are a fan of architecture the Baptistery in Pisa is an absolute gem. It is a wonderful amalgam of a wide variety of architectural styles. The base is Romanesque, the second level is Gothic, and the interior is Byzantine.

While the tower is the main attraction in the piazza, the baptistry is wonderful in its own right. The acoustics inside are unbelievable. It's worth waiting around for someone to demonstrate them.

The Baptistry at the Duomo in Pisa is a very sparse structure, but it's lovely none the less. While I was there, a woman was singing by the platform in the middle and the way it echoed off the walls was really beautiful. There's also a great view of the Duomo from a broken window screen upstairs... though they may have fixed that by now.

The Bapistry is a dome on the other side of the cathedral from the Leaning Tower. You can climb to the upper level, and sometimes the guards will walk to the center to let out a note that resonates throughout the entire building.

The third fundamental part of the Piazza del Duomo in Pisa is he, the Baptistery. Shining monument, like a jewel, in what makes Pisa, as well as Italy, one of the most famous squares in the world. It is located in front of the façade that looks to the west of the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. The beginning of its construction dates back to 1152 and ended approximately in 1390. The exterior is a marvel of structures and superstructures, of return of over and windows, while the interior appears very simple and essential.
