  • This is one of the most impressing Baptisteriums we ever visited. In Parma an absolute must see. You pay entrance, but it is absolute worth 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.
