  • It is a well preserved and with all the furnishings. The visit is being driven and is ideal for the large and small curiosity of this building now inhabited by the last Prince. From the outside it doesn't get the idea of what it contains and does not expect to see beautiful frescoes, richly decorated halls such as the bridal chamber. long corridors such as the Gallery of poets. as each Castle has its Ghost: Common Woman, Cassandra Marinone wife of Marquis Uma II Meli Lupi made murder by his brother-in-law. The visit is €9 well spent. It is forbidden to take pictures.

  • When you ask "Let's Soragna?", say yes, without hesitation, even if you don't know where it is, or maybe, you know, of course ... from parts of Parma ... There's a castle there (or rather: ululì!), private eh!, complete with Prince still living "certificate": Uma "VI". Simply indicate the guide the legendary plastic fish that the Prince left down a corridor and you should animate with a jingle kitsch to the passage of tourists. The current Prince is wry and sly, something quite different than the ancestor serioso "Uma", which you can see, sulking and sculpted in the family Chapel. The feature of the castle is this: he had always been in the same family. And so it is like an aged person, which clearly sees the beauty of the distant youth. And youth breaks out with frescoes by all heavenly fountains gushing water, animals salt "hybrids" of a fantasy world, "putti" lascivious playing Chase. And then there are the erotic nakedness of Alfeo and Aretusa (you should know that Alpheus fell in love at the first sight of the nymph Arethusa, but the nymph, to escape him, turned into secret source; then Alpheus became underground river to rejoin her. ..). You can visit the castle of Soragna with the woman that you want to get to know each other, remembering the thousand pursuits of your lives and the thousand glances behind because in true love chasing, but he also chased and, above all, nothing is lost.

  • When you travel to discover our beautiful Italy and looking for historic places, passing by the province of Parma has spoilt for choice. Considering that at most one thinks of a day to devote to this kind of requests, starting in the morning and return in the evening, you look around and plan what to do and where to go without neglecting what to see and where to eat! Therefore, the province of Parma, near Fontanellato, we find Soragna. Small village with historical and cultural attraction with its castle at the Centre of attention: the Rocca Meli Lupi di Soragna. Needless to tell the story because you can find it on their site, but highly effective will discover that this manor contains within it unique and stucco details, rooms furnished with really wonderful and an aura of mystery about the style Aghata Christie with murder, bloodshed and Ghost attached which wanders through the rooms makes it even more interesting. The rock is inhabited partly by its current owner and some restrictions such as not being able to take pictures inside creates some disappointment to the visitor who would like to take home some memory. Never mind. Having a guide that explains what you are seeing along the way and the value of the things you are looking at will make you understand their motivation. Recommended visit between April and October. If you visit in winter ... plan with Windbreakers, wool socks, gloves and hat. Nevertheless, its charm you don't lose even with the cold! Visit highly recommended.

  • Beautiful. It's an actual palace in a small Midvale town. Very unique and definitely worth a visit
  • The fortress was built in 1385 by the Marquis Bonifacio and Antonio Lupi by Charles IV in 1347 had feudal investiture in the territory, who exercised power until the Napoleonic invasion. It is likely that the first fortress with square plan with four towers at the sides, was already within a year, while the exterior wall was completed in 1392.

  • It is a very beautiful castle (former water Castle) with a checkered history. The interiors, which are equipped and well maintained are interesting and often we used for film and commercials. Lives in a wing still the Prince Meli Lupi - maybe you are lucky and will be invited to an audience? Unfortunately, the entry is quite high (€9,--), and photograph may not be.

  • Beautiful medieval castle dating back to the 16th century, which is still the residence of the Meli Lupi. The spacious rooms are decorated with frescoes and tapestries depicting historical and mythological scenes over the stunning throne room in Baroque style. Fascination, mystery and legend lurk in these environments used for scenes of Elisa di Rivombrosa and tv broadcasts. A must see, great!
