  • Nothing exceptional but lies in the immediate environment of the Duomo. Dark Interior. The special feature is the presence of a cloister. Attention to 12 h battery (the bells will you know), you are cordially invited to continue the visit... on the outside.

  • The façade of the Church was designed by Simone Moschino Mannerist and late-75 meters tall Bell Tower was added later and is the highest of Parma. The Interior has a Latin cross with three naves covered by cross vaults. The pillars are classic, fluted gray stone with composite capitals surmounted by a nut. In the Middle stands the aisles continuous frieze of Correggio and always its grotesques on-pillars, while the decoration of the vaults, with candelabra, cherubs and symbols of John the Evangelist are by Michelangelo Anselmi. Correggio had even front Bay with God the father at the Center, Saints Andrew and Peter left and the conversion of Saul to the right. Always by Correggio fresco Lunette of the portal leading to the sacristy and the great dome that represents the vision of Saint John, the Apostle sees Christ's person blazing skies and appear one, that shows him his place in the circle of the Apostles. Note the floor ... awesome
