Unfortunately, the Basilica was closed on April 25th, which was a disappointment because I wanted to see the tombs of the Dukes of Parma in the crypt and the exquisite interior. The 16th century exterior is pretty very impressive and I am happy we have...More

Had the opportunity to attend Mass here on Palm Sunday. A beautiful Basilica. Is very intimate although it appears huge from the outside. Definitely worth a visit to see the artwork and attend Mass.

Very different basilica but very interesting. Stunning architecture and beautiful murals on the inside especially on the domed roof.

Beautiful a church, one of my favourite church interior. The images show how lovely it can be. We visited it about 9.30am and there are only a few people inside praying. Worth visiting.

Interesting fresco of Correggio with the same subject as in the cathedral. Visit this first to see the evolution.

Small church with some interesting details. Very old and with a specific architecture, you may well walk in.

Said to be one of the oldest cathedrals in the world, a very interesting place to visit, really nice architecture, a top tip, do not go when they are have a mass, the place gets crowded, some nice photographs
