Also known as Camera della Badessa. An easily missed gem, In via Melloni, in the centre of Parma. The 16C convent is set in an attractively planted courtyard. All on the ground floor, it was once the intellectual heart of Parma where the Abbess clearly...More

Spectacular building from the outside, you must be interested in art/religion to find the inside worth the entrance fee.

Not to be missed, even though it's only two rooms. The first room is beautiful and interesting, spent a good twenty minutes here. But the second room was unbelievable - the optical illusions make it three-dimensional, and the Correggio putti are so endearing. It is...More

I wish they hadn't changed the opening hours on me without any previous notice. But the rooms are not to be missed.

A incredible conception of Corregio, originally elaborated to a abadessa room. You need to go. The ticket is not expensive and it is located on the way to everything you want to see in Parma.
