Not sure if I believe in some special energy emitted by such things. But whenever I see such an ancient and solid baptismal font, I do put a hand on it for a few minutes. Just trying to imagine the generations of people who touched the water there . . .

The light in the alcove gleaming from the whitewash is almost angelic. The dark tiles seem to make it even brighter. What a perfect place to a christening.

I knew it looked real old and it is. It seems to be calling some sort of mystical message. I wonder how many have been baptized there. Interesting. MB

You could baptize two or three kids in that thing! Love the tile!

A very old piece.
We recently spent out there, at a concentration of Vespas :))
I'm staying here. I follow you.

That is a big font! Is the light natural or from a lamp?
