Art and Culture in Parma: National and Municipal Galleries and Museums
Since the early Middle Ages, Parma has been a famous seat of learning, thanks to its Episcopal School (Studium Parmensis) attracting young students from all over Europe.
Parma is also a city rich in art and culture: its unique examples of Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance architecture like the magnificent Cathedral and the Baptistery are really a must see. National and Municipal Galleries are worth visiting as well, revealing a treasure of masterpieces in painting and sculpture.
For a virtual tour, see the website.
