  • Arrival by car in Parma, in the courtyard of the monastery parking confidential! A Cicero exclusive accompanies us in the visit. The three cloisters, the Chapter House, the views from the cloisters with the view of the belfry (overtime), the exquisite welcome father Augustine with some Oblates, the Church with frescoes of Correggio, the monumental organ, the monumental library (to remain open-mouthed) longer Europe Hall with on one side the cells of the friars. Beautiful visit. Our Cicero made it memorable

  • Great monastery. Rooms and indoor gardens truly beautiful. Solid wood throughout. I recommend it to anyone walking around there.

  • Let go last and when I came in I couldn't see anything because it was completely dark inside. If I wanted to see something should pay 2 euros to light up a part, spending a total of 10 euros to see the whole Church! Best charge entry and illuminate everything.

  • 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!
  • 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

  • A beautiful church with frieze of Jewish and pagan Sacrifice, designed by Correggio and built by f. m. Rondani in the nave. The left aisle stands for interesting early works by Parmigianino.

  • The Abbey of San Giovanni Evangelista is a Benedictine complex of the historical centre of Parma, Emilia Romagna. The vast collection of buildings includes the Church, the monastery and the old pharmacy. The Abbey basilica was rebuilt starting from about 1490, with a final draft in 1510 ended then in 1519 by Bernardino Z. (from Wiki)
