BEAUTIFUL CASTLE WITH FABULOUS FRESCO WORK IN MANY ROOMS. THE FILM "LADYHAWKE" WAS FILMED HERE AND AT OTHER LOCATIONS IN THE AREA. A LOCAL BUS SERVICE RUNS OUT OF PARMA. IT IS SET ON A HILL WITH A FANTASTIC NATURAL VISTA.
Pretty cool castle with tons of rooms to wander through and some nice views.
Of many castles we have visited, this one is right up there with the best in both authenticity and impressiveness. 5€ entry is excellent value for a large castle. Be aware of unusual opening times.
Roberta Gasparini provided a wonderful and detailed tour of this beautiful castle. What a love story!
Great place to wonder. Very beautiful frescoes.
