This was one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen anywhere. The ceilings are so gorgeous. Each alcove is different and perfection.

We expected Parma Cathedral to be a gem but it vastly exceeded our expectations. The white facade completed in 1178, three loggia floors and three portals, elaborate doors, the belfry of 15th century look like they were built yesterday. And the opulent interior with amazing...More

The most notable features about this cathedral are the wonderfully painted walls and ceiling. Entry is free.
