  • Imposing exterior even though it represents only .25 of the huge original court, at the time one of the largest in Emilia. The Interior, which is still used as a town hall, it is still open, between the desks of employees, the Mayor's table and the phone of accounting, you will find some of the most extraordinary frescoes of 500 cycles, author uncertain (among the powers: Vincenzo Tamagni, Jerome Mirola, Bertoja, il Malosso and Baglione), inspired by Aesop's Fables and classical mythology. Evening tours are also organized, with theatrical animations relating to the history of the Manor. Beautiful reception rooms on the piano nobile, lowered and sometimes with lunettes, and the great Hall of the acts through Rossi, which measures 20 x 14, and 11 m in height. On the walls, and a large marble Renaissance fireplace, there are 13 boxes that describe some warlike events of the reds. In the Pavilion and Pier Maria is depicted kneeling in front of Francis I, King of France, while receiving the Michael's Collar. In the Hall of the Golden donkey is told, in frescos, the tale of Apuleius.

  • The exterior quite bare, but inside reveals frescoes preserved with very specific subjects like Aesop's Fables which reveal a very deep meaning, which we will explain by the Guide. We had Evelyn, very good both for the full explanation for both the enthusiasm for his work

  • San Secondo is a very nice village, it is worth it for a quick visit if you pass through this place on your way to Parma.
  • Nice to see if you're passing by but not worth to plan a stop just for it. If you've to stop by pay a visit to a pastry shop nearby.
  • A magnificent step back in time ... An eye to the Renaissance in the heart of the Grand Duchy of Parma and Piacenza.

  • Rocca very well kept rich in frescoes and decorated rooms. Outdoor garden landscaped. To visit and get to know the story is absolutely important to visit the castle of Roccabianca and even Torrechiara.
