  • 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

  • Imposing Cathedral with important masterpieces, such as the frescoes by Parmigianino and the dome of Sangallo. The shape of a Greek cross makes it original and characteristic.

  • 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.
