Very interesting building, unfortunately it was closed when we've been here. So maybe next time... Outside by the church is monument of Parmigianino with the fountain with drinkable water.

There are Ptarmigan initial frescos in the nave but we could see little ever with binoculars. Historic, but a letdown.

We got there during the Sunday mass so we didn't feel like walking around taking pictures. The church is beautiful and looks massive from the outside.

If you're strolling down from the main station, you can't miss this so, do stop in. It is beautiful and ornate and on the way to the other attractive sites.

Happened to arrive during Mass which was nice as it was Sunday. Afterwards, spent time walking around and trying to take in all the artistic renderings. It's like a museum (a lot of Italian churches are) and would take some time to truly appreciate.

A lovely church in a quiet part of town. If you are just strolling around Parma, this is a must see.

Worth a visit while in Parma. Exterior is unique and beautiful inside but of course the catedral in the same town overwhelms it. But take a look.

In church are tombs of 26 members of Farnese family, which were Dukes of Parma. It has a baroque altar and in the aspe is a beautiful fresco of the Coronation of the Virgin with Saints.
