“Correggio for 2euro”

Camera di San Paolo
Ranked #9 of 143 things to do in Parma
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed May 30, 2013

The wonderful Correggio ceiling has to be worth the paltry fee of just two euros by any measure. Go on a quiet weekday and you will stand a good chance of having it all to yourself. I believe it closes at 2pm and last entrance at 1.30p.m

We visited here after reading the reviews of others. Interestingly, these frescoes were forgotten by the world for much of the 17th and 18th centuries. There's not much I can add to other reviews other than to endorse the comments - definitely not to be missed out from your visit to Parma.

Not many people now about this and want to visit it but if you are interested in renaisance and is forms of art you got to go. Ask for the leaflet in english and spent at least an hour inside focusing on the details of the frescoes. There is also a very interesting story behind this small but still magnificent room in central Parma

What an absolute little treasure in Parma! This small convent has some incredible paintings of the young Correggio. The ceilings are beautifully restored to all of their magnificence, especially the playful cherubs, and are a delight to discover. Highly recommended, and only 2 euros to see!

The tree-lined, narrow walkway to the Camera is so pretty and quiet, and the mood follows you into the building. We quite enjoyed trying to decipher our poorly translated guidebook to orient ourselves under the Correggio ceilings, which are the reason to visit the Camera. Even my engineer husband could understand the "breakthrough" syle of the paintings. While the putti are amusing and fun to see, the monchrome "lunettes" are sublime! Because of it's tranquility and exquisite scale, the Camera brought to mind the lovely Sainte Chapelle in Paris--but without the mobs of tourists.
