A DEPARTURE POINT FOR VISITING THE CITY

Fiera di San Luca

The San Luca Fair is a mix of exhibitions, shows, and culinary workshops that bring folk traditions to the historic centre: watch butchers making pork delicacies, bakers making bread, and cheese-makers producing Parmigiano Reggiano, or taste genuine specialities from local areas and further afield, such as sughi d’uva, saba, and savôr, made from sweet grape must; fried polenta; tigelle (flatbreads); frittelle (fried dough); gnocchi; and chestnuts. Entrance to the fair is free and it runs from the evening to the next morning.

Ai portici dell'antico Market

Every third Saturday, with the exception of the months of July and August, the Corso Mazzini arcades host an antique market that also offers modern collectibles and handmade goods. With an extensive number of participating vendors, one can always find a bargain or an unusual gift.

Jewish Cemetery

Just outside the old walls of the historic centre, this small historic cemetery bears witness to the existence of a small Jewish community.

Church of San Francesco

This is the oldest church in the city and it holds the remains of the illustrious Da Correggio family and those of the painter Antonio Allegri, known as il Correggio.

Basilica of San Quirino

This medieval church is dedicated to the city's patron saint and was built between the ninth and tenth centuries. Over time it underwent several modifications until a thirteen-year period from 1512 to 1525, when it was rebuilt in Renaissance style.

Monument to "il Correggio"

At the centre of Piazza di San Quirino and facing the Basilica of the same name stands a magnificent white marble statue dedicated to the famous painter Antonio Allegri, known as il Correggio.
