Beautiful little Baptistery. Open from 10am
The walls and roof are amazingly beautiful. Although it is only small, it is well worth the time to see the frescoes. If you have a Padua pass, entry is free
This is almost a mini version of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel! It's a baptism chapel which is covered from top to bottom in frescoes that illustrate the life of Our Lord. Essentially, the gospels in pictures.

If you get a museums pass for 24 hours you'll get free entrance.

The exterior architecture is very similiar to San Antonio and Santa Guistina, but again, the interior offers something unique. Not as ornately or lavishly decorated inside as San Antonio, but well worth seeing and here, photography is allowed and the church is free to visit.
