  • Just behind the Cathedral, town center in Parma is the monastery of San Giovanni Evangelista. Standing in front of the Church... as soon as you come through the entrance gate to the Church, she's a very old Eindruck...aber you can choose very difficult, where you should first look... This church is full of wall paintings, sculptures, frescoes, organs, pictures and so much more. San Giovanni Evangelista ...ist an absolute must if your Parma visits... I can really only recommend it...! We hardly spoke because our amazement was bigger and bigger... The dome was really fascinating... The vision of St. John in Patmos. In each of the rooms, there was a fascinating story... The exact address is... Piazzale San Giovanni 1, 43100 Parma the opening hours are from 8.30 11:45, 15-17:30 Sundays closed

  • Recommended by the kind keeper of Historic Spezieria di San Giovanni, we visited (behind free donation) the convent of Saint John with his three cloisters and, above all, the beautiful library on the 1 St floor. Accompanied by an old lady, we could appreciate the ceiling elaborately painted with grotesque scenes and inscriptions in Latin, Greek, Syriac and Aramaic: a treat not to be missed!

  • 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

  • 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)
