We visited on a very hot day in July. The Monastero looked nice from the outside but once we got in we were just blown away by its magnificence: the columns, the ceiling, and everything else. It was not crowded, which was a huge plus....More

Correggio, one of the best painters of the Italian Renaissance, with the extra value of being in a church with less visitors than the nearby duomo. Toll free entrance.

The church is magnificient as almoust all other in Italy. It has cool 3D ilusionistic floor. The monastery is a good substitution for The Charterhouse of Parma from Stendhal's novel, which is closed as I was told.
