Octagonal and frestanding right next to the Duomo is this medieval masterpiece of architecture - both from the in- and outside. Make sure to buy your tickets first iin the souvenir shop of the Dome across the square.

Parma was on the pilgrimage routes to Rome and pilgrims used to be baptised here so to reach the capital as Christians. Interesting insight of the former greatness of Parma
