  • beautiful edifice with a cloister near the duomo. The place is beautiful. It is the row of monuments that makes the place to be.

  • The cloisters are 3, communicating: from 1° cloister leads to the library (1 St floor) with beautifully decorated with Renaissance motifs; in the Central cloister there is access to the Chapter House, but we found it closed; the 3° cloister is barred by a gate and we have limited ourselves to observe it from there. The cloisters doesn't have significant architectural motifs, but they are still nice to visit (as indeed all cloisters) and offer nice perspective views. The complex thus deserves, as well as the adjacent church and the pharmacy (the latter subject to a modest € 2 ticket and only open morning of gg.).

  • Good place to feel monastery life in Parma since the Charterhouse from Stendhal's novel is closed. It has a small pharmacy.  more »

  • We visited the cloisters, and the ones of the Monastero di San Giovanni Evangelista are wonderful. Unfortunately you can't see all of them, but those that are free for the public are really nice. There's no entrance fee, but you can donate something before or after entering the cloisters.
  • Spectacular!
  • Dark and solemn as a church of the monastery should be, is a remarkable artistic monument. Splendid frescoes are a bit hard to see: there is little light inside. The monks are certainly strange people, like all religious: it is always interesting to see how most of the Italian artistic heritage is in the hands of a bunch of old sclerotic generally weird. Have a guesthouse that works well and, although simple, is welcoming. The library is something spectacular glorious frescoes. Obviously it would be ideal to host cultural events, but actually it works out that there are those who can and who cannot-black and white hens in a Parma infested with living rooms and people.

  • Classic heritage church with a Baroque façade and Bell Tower, is located just a few steps from the duomo and definitely worth a visit with the necessary calm. beautifully decorated internally, the frieze of Correggio, the expertly inlaid wooden choir and the side chapels built into two secondary naves. @gargio76
