  • Seldom opened, the exhibition has proved tempting for visiting this site. Interior has been much restored over the centuries, but beautiful Gothic façade (included in another building).

  • The baptistery is located in the Church of Saint John the Baptist, which was built in the 11st century, and because many times rebuilt and reconstructed baptistery, as would be embedded in its façade, because immediately becomes incomprehensible and that it is not a separate building, as for example in Florence and Parma. Inside the baptistery preserved an ancient fresco "baptism of Christ". Admission is free, because the view is worth it.

  • The Church of St John the Baptist, better known to most as the baptistery of Reggio Emilia, is located in piazza del Duomo or Piazza Prampolini, next to the façade of the Cathedral. Looks like a unique building of the 1100 features a Latin cross, the center of which was the baptismal font from which it derives its fame in Reggio as city Baptistery. Had a recent restoration, 80 years of 1900, which has returned to the city most of the medieval structures were unknown until then. The baptistery is usually closed to the public, and is opened to the town on rare occasions, such as during the holiday season. Very beautiful façade, whose main element is definitely the portal with a Latin inscription and depiction of the baptism of Christ.

  • Magnificent structure with stunning interior, dating to the 1200s. As impressive in its way at the Duomo next door. Soaring mosaic ceiling covered is covered in gleaming Biblical tales, along with a dazzling mosaic marble floor, marble inlaid walls, and granite pillars and and sculpture all around. Pisano's and Ghiberti's exterior bronze sculptured doors (which can be seen free -- though one is a replica, the original can be viewed in the Duomo museum for a fee) are stunning as well.
  • Gorgeous square pink marble of Carrara and perfectly preserved medieval building. The Cathedral is free admission, while the baptistery is paying a ticket.

  • Very nice, well painted and renovated, it would be nice that there was also a guide to explain it

  • Beautiful octagonal building, completely painted inside. Access is free of charge, but for groups, seniors or students discounts. Must see!

  • Wonderful: one of the most beautiful and important monuments in Parma. Also worth seeing are the Interior, it's worth it.
