  • A visit to this church, not home to parish, arriving in Parma must definitely do. Located a few meters from piazza Garibaldi, in the heart of the city. Nearby you can visit the Royal Theatre, the Cathedral and baptistery which can be reached with a short walk in the pedestrian area.

  • Like all the churches of Italy this basilica contains many frescos all more beautiful than the other. Its originality compared to the other churches of Parma holds in its statues adorning the perimeter of the balconies of roofs. I couldn't count them all, but it is certain that goes beyond their twenties. The set offers a beautiful imposing harmony. A must see.

  • We were a little disappointed by the visit of this church where we walked, in alternate phases, four times. Liturgical celebrations were under way in all circumstances, and therefore had to wait until the end of the harvest. Immediately, however, the lights were turned off and the darkness fell upon the Church preventing us from fully appreciate the exhibited works. However, this is an elegant building dominated the dome designed by Antonio da Sangallo the younger. Inside, the dome is the crowning of the Virgin by cats and in the fresco by Parmigianino front Bay, depicting the three wise virgins and the three virgins. Consult timetables of church services and bring change for the illumination in order to enjoy the beauty of the frescoes.

  • 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.
