Authentic even if a little average Apr 15, 2011
This basilica has been around since the mid sixteenth century and is quite in the central area of Parma. I thought the exterior was much more impressive than the interior though. When the sun picks up a little, the exterior glistens rather beautifully and invites you in. Inside, the chapels are nice enough, though there is no hidden gem or artwork here. However, what it lacks in wow factor it makes up for in authenticity. This is first a place of worship, and it fits this description rather accurately. Even more than the main cathedral itself, this place attracts a decent amount of worshippers and seems to be a genuinely busy and bustling place. Worth popping into quickly!
