Lovely basilica. Impressive frescoes. Part of the Parma experience, conveniently located behind the Teatro Reggio.

Definitely a cathedral to see while in Parma. When you enter the church and see the artwork the effect is overwhelming. Too bad it is so dark that it is difficult to see.

Wonderful art and craftsmanship in the carvings, as with all religious buildings I have visited in Greece and Italy fantastic stone work meticulous marble craftsmanship. But a large over the top space for no real purpose, but all ways the wow factor:) each building a credit to its architects and stone masons ,and the people of the city they serve ( but really just a look at us how big we are by the church ?)

The beautiful frescos make this basilica worth a visit (in any case, it's conveniently located right in the town centre), but my advice would be to see this one before the cathedral, as being smaller and less magnificent, it does suffer a little in comparison.

A trip to Parma from Florence by train to sample their cheeses, brought us to this most beautiful Cathedral we have visited. That is saying something, because we have been into quite a few in our travels throughout Italy.

You go in the door and your jaw drops. The architecture and frescos are just awesome. The cathedral is abundant with renaissance artwork and the ceiling has this most beautiful fresco by Corregio. Photos do not do this beautiful cathedral justice. We wandered, sat and admired for over an hour. It was truly magnificent
