  • Entering the baptistery of Parma was a unique experience. Leaving aside the beauty and originality of the structure, the magnificent interior, completely frescoed, takes us to an ancient and mystical world, where we can perceive the history and religiosity of our unreachable Italy. Unforgettable.

  • After the Duomo, the baptistery is definitely worth a visit. Very impressive indeed. Nice decorations.

  • Remarkable structure with amazing sculptures by Benedetto Antelami and his workshop (late 12th-early 13th cent.) as well as stunning frescoes in the octagonal interior space by some of the greatest artists of the 14th and 15th centuries.
  • If you are jn Parma it is worth the walk but nothing more. Just an old building.
