  • The Church is located over the Parma river, along the road leading to the Old Hospital. Very particular plant, as its already seeing the outside, but it is even more evident once you enter: a nearly circular central space on which a series of chapels, which are sometimes included the rich baroque altars (Nice especially the middle one, surrounded by 2 organs on the sides and a central plank of 1518). Aside from the altars, the Church's architecture is typical of the Renaissance style: very nice bow before the altar, embellished with fine stucco and statues we went on a Saturday morning and the square in front of the church there was a market of local products sold by local entrepreneurs: we took the opportunity to buy an absurdly seasoned Parmesan cheese (yummy) at a very affordable price.

  • Church in Central Parma very spacious. Very bright and a Baroque not too heavy, the particularity of the elliptical shape of the nave, dates from the second half of the 16th century. Very beautiful are the two life-size statues in two chapels one of a Franciscan Bishop martyr in China in 1900, Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina. Recommend a visit.

  • The Church of SS. Annunziata dates from the second half of the 16th century and until the eighteenth century remained dedicated to SS. Gervaso and Protaso. The temple was built and financed by the Farnese and with popular offerings. The Church has a plan almost elliptical, with two semicircles joined by two lines, in addition to the apse, the ten chapels decorated in stucco and the internal Atrium. The space is divided by fluted pilasters. Right, in a niche, you can admire the Ecce Homo, polychrome terracotta by Antonio Sbravati, and a painting of the martyrdom of the Saints Gervaso and Protaso, nineteenth-century work of Biagio Martini. The table of the altar represents the Madonna, child and saints Bernard, John the Baptist, John the Evangelist and Francis of Assisi; the work is by Francesco Zaganelli da Cotignola. The chapels are decorated with paintings of Pier Ilario Spolverini, Sebastiano Galeotti and Camillo birds. To Luca 17th stuccoes and other Networks are attributed the main classroom decorations.
