Santa Severina Baptistery
The Santa Severina Baptistery is one of few structures of its kind in southern Italy. Dating back to the Byzantine period of the tenth century, it stands next to the Concattedrale di Sant'Anastasia, the main church in the hill town in the Crotone Province of Calabria.
Slightly hidden from view and just around the corner from the church's impressive facade, it has its own separate entrance.
The opening times for the Santa Severina Baptistery are not quite as straightforward as you would hope. If you're lucky, you'll turn up and find the Baptistery is open, but if not, there are several options.
First, you can ask in Bar La Piazza, the little cafe closest to the Baptistery, if they'll open it for you. If not, you can try asking in the castle or emailing them before your visit at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
