Battistero Parma - Review
Overshadowing the cathedral of Parma, this pink-colored stone baptistery in octagonal shape cannot ignore your attention. Popularly known as Battistero (in Italina), it is situated on the south side of the piazza. Taking a closure look to the baptistery will show that the architectural design has a mixture of Romanesque and Gothic style. Its highlighting feature is the artwork done by sculptor Benedetto Antelami. Don’t forget to see the 16 arches, painted with elaborate paintwork. When you step inside, look up to the dome ceiling which has a unique umbrella structure.

Battistero Parma, Parma Reviews
Stunning interior, worth the admission price, tickets from the Diocesan museum in the opposite side of the square, a double ticket for both museums costs €8.
Probably the top of the Parma historic sights. Very well documented frescoes. Worth to sit down in a shadow of all Saints around and think not only about masters, creating such a wonderfull place, but also about yourself ... you can still go into more details, once visiting the museum opposite to Battistero, where you should even buy a ticket for both sightseeings.
I haven't accessed the Baptistery as it was 8€ per adults and I don't believe it's fair to pay to access for Christian places. However the structure is stunning from outside too. Pink marble looks shiny during sunny days and it complements the square with the beautiful Parma Cathedral
A single magnificent jewel of mediaeval times. Twelfth century octagonal building of pink marble with a huge baptismal font at its centre, decorated from floor to dome ( five storeys up ) with wonderful mediaeval frescoes and sculptures. Very crowded but well organised - it is a wonder, with many styles and varied subject matter, though sadly some clearly some find little there to excite them.
