Fodor's Expert Review San Giovanni Evangelista

Parma Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Beyond the elaborate Baroque facade of San Giovanni Evangelista, the Renaissance interior reveals several works by Correggio: St. John the Evangelist (in the lunette above the door in the left transept) is considered among his finest. More work by Correggio can be seen in the cupola and in the fifth chapel on the right. Also in this church, under the arches in the first, second, and fourth chapels on the left, are works by Parmigianino (1503–40), a contemporary of Correggio's.
