Chieri - Battistero del Duomo

Chieri - Battistero del Duomo
The former Collegiate Church "Santa Maria della Scala in Chieri". As it is really large, it is often named "Duomo di Chieri", though it never was a cathedral.

The first church here was erected on the site of a Roman temple to Minerva within the 5th century. This got replaced by a Romanesque buildig in the first decades of the 11th century.

From 1405 on this Romanesque church got completely remodeled and rebuilt in Gothic style and was consecrated in 1437.

The ocotogonal "Battistero del Duomo" is Romanesque and older than the Duomo. It was built from bricks coming from Roman buildings within the 13th century and was originaly detached from the Romanesque Duomo. It was connected to the Gothic structure.
