  • A Greek cross with central plan Church of 1500; bright, but not very impressive for the frescoes, statues and organization of interior spaces
    View original
  • Architecturally it is a rather complex building, a Greek cross with apses on each of the arms. Majestic interior with frescoes; also worth seeing are the sacristy.

  • One of the coolest ornate altars I have seen in any church.
  • Wonderful! The interior is absolutely fantastic
  • Splendid example of Renaissance architecture Parma, it is a basilica with a central plan with Greek cross of bramantesque influences, built in the 30 years of the sixteenth century. Of note, over the high altar, the last vibrant work of Parmigianino, The wise and the foolish virgins. It is impossible not to notice the large dome cover that features both interior and external volumes. Unfortunately there are quite bizarre that restrict hours of very visits from tourists. Worth, even fleeting, visit @gargio76

  • The basilica of Santa Maria della Steccata, from 1718 headquarters of the Constantinian order of Saint George, is a Marian shrine made in Parma between 1521 and 1539. The building has a Greek cross plan where each of the four arms is closed by large symmetrical apses. The Interior is richly decorated with frescoes of the Parma School of the 17th century.

  • Get lost, admiring his nose up the ceiling frescoed by Parmigianino. And experience the "Stendhal Syndrome", which I happen to own wrote of Parma.
