  • We were speechless in joining visit this shrine I honestly didn't expect it so beautiful and majestic once you can't hide beautiful shivers

  • Didn't like it much. Is not lit and for me it's a minus. A moment before we saw the Cathedral and the baptistery (and in General) and then this ... the comparison does not hold. Try to see it instead, maybe it's better and stay happier.

  • From the outside you can't imagine the grandeur of the Interior. The nave is truly majestic and imposing, beautiful Colonnade, beautiful frescoes, beautiful ceiling. Pity that at 12 o'clock we got out for closure.

  • 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)
