7/a Piazza Duomo, Parma, Italy
Parma Cathedral Reviews
Stunning dome and worth coming here just for this Apr 15, 2011
The cathedral in Parma has been around since the eleventh century, getting embellished gradually. It’s a great example of Romanesque architecture, and is quite a handsome building from the outside. For me, the frescoes created by Correggio on the dome interior make this church a key visit. The frescoes date from the thirteenth century and easily rival the ones that grace the dome of the Duomo in Florence. It’s very hard not to be amazed by the dome, and it’s probably best to come with a strong neck! Elsewhere in the church, the chapels seemed nice enough. However, as the place was under heavy restoration when I was there, it was hard to get a good grasp of them. Nonetheless, the dome itself makes this place a very worthy visit.
