The cathedral is a must to visit being located right next to the Basilica at the most beautiful square in Parma. It was pretty quiet and not too busy, highly recommended.

Cathedral of Parma is one of best preserved in Italy, having in mind the period when it was built (11-12th ad). The whole intetior is lovely fresco painted including Correggio masterpiec over the oltar. The architecture is spectacular, out of ordinary for catolic churces.

high expectations to visit it, well worth to spend a couple of hours at least to watch all the religious complex with baptistery and the diocesan museum.

The small chapels around this cathedral are all beautiful in their own way. But the art in the cupola is breathtaking. I can't imagine visiting Parma and not stopping here.

One shouldn't miss this Cattedrale either. It serves as a nice architectural and spiritual complement to the Battistero.

Most cathedrals we've visited were noted for their sculpture and windows, this place has the most amazing frescoes I've seen almost anywhere outside of the Sistine Chapel. Just about every square foot of wall is decorated with stories taken from the Bible, lives of saints or other liturgical subjects, and they are glorious.
