  • Certosa di Paradigna, located in the suburb of Parma, so tourists rarely arrives here, although it's worth a visit. The monastery was built in the 14th century by the Benedictine monks, all that stone, square and strict. Now there is even a hotel, where you can stop, as well as a Museum and a restaurant.

  • The monastery or Abbey of Valserena today Deconsecrated, belongs to the University of Parma and is the seat of the Centro Studi e Archivio della Comunicazione. Call certosa is wrong because it was never run by Carthusian monks, but by the Cistercians. The building dates back to 1300, has a latina in Lombard Gothic style. The Interior has three naves with cross vaults, the pillars are octagonal, the capitals of stone. At one time, inside were a precious altar and a fresco attributed to Parmigianino. All works, when defrocking, were transferred to the Academy of fine arts of Parma. In the apse remain some frescoes. The façade was renovated in the 18th century. It is said that inspired Stendhal in his novel the Charterhouse of Parma. Today it houses various works, a permanent exhibition and unrehearsed managed by the University.
