Beautiful Cathedral. A man was standing outside disallowing people to enter as the mass was ongoing. It was understandable. After the mass, we were allowed to enter. The facade of the Church was simple and you will never imagine how different it is inside. It was so grandious and so beautiful. Masks is required inside.

After the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City, this is the most beautiful and impressive fresco in the world. The building is beautiful from the outside, but inside it is heavenly beautiful

We were walking around Parma enjoying the sights and popped into this cathedral. What a beautiful church! I was taken by the beautiful ceilings and gorgeous art work.

Interesting cathedral covered with monochrome frescoes, whose most famous feature is Corregio's Assumption in the central cupola.
This trompe-l-oeil is quite a feat, and one cannot help being bemused by the profusion of legs, arms, faces rising to eternity in a twirling vortex ! Dickens, himself could not help writing that "not even a surgeon gone totally mad could imagine, in his wildest delirium, such a scene »;-)

So far, most beautiful and impressive cathedral I've seen in Italy. I found so many a let-down, such as in Florence but this was a real gem.

This is a very nice cathedral in the historic center of Parma. Walk around and stroll the square and then stop in the church to see the frescoes and architecture.

Interior full of colorful frescos, from floor to ceiling. The crypt is also interesting, theoretically reserved for praying only, but large groups went down, breaking a bit the atmosphere. Worth to have the audioguide, that you get included with the ticket for the baptistere and diocesan museum: all the painted scenes are well described in it.

the church is so grand that it has three storeys, with lots of paintings on every chamber wall and the ceilings.

You can feel peaceful when you are inside.

The outside square is quite pretty. The interior is stunning, as a local friend told me, the colours and painting style is very Parmense. Highly recommend visiting, and it’s free to visit.
