Santa Croce is a Romanesque-style, Roman Catholic church, located on the piazza of the same name, along via Emilia in the quartiere of Oltretorrente of Parma, Region of Emilia-Romagna, Italy.
The church was built in the early decades of the 12th century along the path of pilgrims bound to Rome following the Francignea route.
In 1633 the roof collapsed onto the main altar. It was radically transformed in the 17th century but traces of the original building can still be seen in the capitals (decoration) of the columns of the three naves.
