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.

  • 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.

  • It's cool but all you see is one big room with paintings inside and a fountain. Price might be a bit high for some people but there are reduced fees for students and seniors

  • Exquisite, don't miss it. Buy ticket from the gift shop by the cathedral

  • Really lovely space with interesting wall paintings and central font - only went in to escape the rain and was glad that I did!

  • Is an interesting octagon building still being used for baptisms. Although interesting the cathedral next door is spectacular.
