Camera Di San Paolo Reviews & Ratings
The best thing to visit in Parma even if It is a little overpriced the ticket (6 euro per person). There is a video which introduces the visit
An amazing place, Abbess Giovanna Piacenza was way ahead of her time. A feminist who commisioned Correggio to paint beautiful and powerful paintings to reflect feminist humanistic power and beauty.
I love this place. It is worth a visit.
