From outside it is even hard to make a photo from the church as there is no perspective - small streets around. You can only value it, when you enter and look around.

I popped inside the basilica while wandering around the centre of Parma. The external architecture is beautiful but it is definitely worth spending ten minutes or so to go inside and see the murals and especially the dome. The Italians certainly did not spare any...More

Very different basilica but very interesting. Stunning architecture and beautiful murals on the inside especially on the domed roof.

Beautiful a church, one of my favourite church interior. The images show how lovely it can be. We visited it about 9.30am and there are only a few people inside praying. Worth visiting.

Interesting fresco of Correggio with the same subject as in the cathedral. Visit this first to see the evolution.

Small church with some interesting details. Very old and with a specific architecture, you may well walk in.

Said to be one of the oldest cathedrals in the world, a very interesting place to visit, really nice architecture, a top tip, do not go when they are have a mass, the place gets crowded, some nice photographs

Unfortunately it was closed for services both times I tried to go in, so make sure you check before you go! The outside looks lovely though, it's quite unique.

We had not planned to stop in this church, but we thought the outside architecture looked unique. This a medium sized church and will not take long to walk through (as long as mass has finished). The dome & apse ceilings were the most impressive...More
