  • With a simple walk in the center you can see the main monuments of reggio emilia, including the baptistery, the Cathedral, etc. Unfortunately, I could see it from the outside because it was closed. In any case, is well worth the visit and impresses with architectural style.

  • Il Battistero is small as compared to the one in Parma. A short walk from B&B Anna e Ricca. I had the pleasure of attending a choir performance featuring the ancient organ housed in the Battestero. In...  more »
  • To the left of the Cattedrale dell'assunta, is embedded in the architecture of the Archbishop's Palace, so as to make it almost anonymous. Nice portal and the bezel which depicts the baptism of Christ Founded between 1040 and 1049, from the outside you do not notice the Latin cross plan, with a central Red Verona marble baptismal font 1494 with tiles. Also nice with the baptism of Christ fresco by Francesco Roes of 1497-98 On external column on the left you can see the linear measurements of the "arm" and the "barre", a reference point for trade measurements (hence the popular saying "St John does see the deception"). Not to be missed!

  • 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.

  • 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.
