Correggio, one of the best painters of the Italian Renaissance, with the extra value of being in a church with less visitors than the nearby duomo. Toll free entrance.

The church is magnificient as almoust all other in Italy. It has cool 3D ilusionistic floor. The monastery is a good substitution for The Charterhouse of Parma from Stendhal's novel, which is closed as I was told.

If you visit Parma it is worth junking round the side of the cathedral to see San Giovanni Evangelista. Attractive from both outside and in, it is a peaceful contract to the cathedral.

there is no entrance fee to this church, located just at the backside of the cathedral, but you need some 1€ coins to get light on the fresco paintings, as else you only look at dark walls... the fresco are worth the few coins.

It was a very hot day in Parma when we visited, and we had to wait till they open. But it was worth. This is a beautiful church with a Coreggio painting on the cupola.

I was expecting more about this sight, but on the spot the doors were closed and could not even enter the library which was mentioned to contain a large and priceless amount of old books. The inner yards were only to be seen which was...More
