  • not far from the Ducal garden away from the major attractions of Parma is the Chiesa di Santa Croce, the beautiful and ancient temple built of IX-XII centuries. A beautiful painted ceiling of the Church and Gothic columns still attract both tourists and believers.

  • Chiesa di Santa Croce-Church, built in the 12 century, the actual appearance of this becomes clear. Is kept well away from the Centre of Parma and its main attractions. The truth is the Ducal Palace and garden. Inside the original frescoes. Beautiful)

  • The Church was built in the first half of the 1100 on a stretch of the via Francigena that from Parma to the Cisa pass and then crossed the Apennines, arrived in Rome. It has three naves with a large chapel on the South side. The frescoes in the nave are from the first half of the twelfth century and depict scenes from the life of Jesus and Saint Joseph. Valuable paintings on the altars: the 1500 and 1600 are. Beautiful polychrome wood carvings depicting the Holy family. There are also two sculptures of Saint Apollonia and santa Lucia. A small portion of a fresco is still remaining in the counter-façade-represents the Madonna and child. The renovation of the early 1900 restored the original appearance of the façade. Is not excellent, but worth a visit.
