The Baptistery of Florence is thought to date back to the 4th century.  The bronze doors by Lorenzo Ghiberti, originally attached to the baptistery have been moved to the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo.  Copies replace the originals.  The baptistery is a striking building stands across from the Santa Maria del Fiore in the Piazza del Duomo in central Florence.  The current Romanesque building dates from 1059.  The building has the shape of an octagon.
