  • next to the cathedral, if not the most beautiful one of the most beautiful Baptistries in the world full of frescoes so much that you will not know where to begin to admire so much impressive beauty its octagonal form (no. 8 indicates infinity) with a large baptismal source at the center in pink marble and a dome that I can not describe so much is fascinating, to understand the history and art of this place of worship I recommend a guided tour in any case you can not fail to visit it

  • An undoubtedly interesting church on a nice market. Interesting details on the facade and tower.
  • An extraordinary building. Parma is small so worth a side trip for a couple hours to see this building and beautiful city.
