Baptistery Entrance - Official

Baptistery Entrance - Official

star-4.5
The construction of the Baptistery began in March 1167. The dimensions are considerable: 34 meters high and 20.50 meters in diameter. The Romanesque-style building has an octagonal plan and is crowned by an elegant gallery. It originally had 3 gates: to the north, south and east; the last two were closed in 1592. The north door, which overlooks the square, is framed by a porch with two column-bearing lions, similar to the porch of the adjacent Cathedral. The executive technique of the brick vault anticipated that of Brunelleschi's dome in Florence by about two centuries. The light inside filters through a double series of superimposed mullioned windows and the lamp placed on the top of the dome. At the center stands the large octagonal cistern: a monolithic block of red Verona marble, crowned by a small statue of the Risen Christ. The three altars inside are dedicated to the Madonna Addolorata, to the Crucifix and to S. Biagio.

Torrazzo entrance - Official

Torrazzo entrance - Official

star-5
The Torrazzo is in effect one of the monuments that best symbolizes the city of Cremona: it is in fact the highest medieval brick bell tower in Europe (about 112.22 m). Its structure exemplifies the extreme accuracy of ancient construction techniques and is considered a perfect combination of extremely different architectural styles. Thanks to the recent opening of the new Vertical Museum, some themes related to the study of the clock are examined in depth. Inside the 4 new rooms you can find some curious historical objects and the reconstruction of some antique clocks. There is also a fantastic installation of Foucault's Pendulum. Its oscillation demonstrates the rotation of the Earth from a scientific point of view. At the top of the tower you can admire a wonderful view of the city and the surrounding landscape.
