  • Its elevated position allows him to dominate the Valley, meeting point between the city and the mountain nearby. Is considered as one of the best preserved architecture of the castles in Italy as it combines elements from the middle ages to those of Italian Renaissance. Owned by the State, is over at Emilia-Romagna's museums of the Ministry of cultural heritage and tourism, and is inserted into the circuit of the Association of the castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza. The castle was originally defended by three circles of walls: the first surrounded the Hill on which it stands, the second protected the village and the third he repaired the castle itself. To pass each circle of walls had to go through a drawbridge that can Intuit the presence from the grooves on the wall under which you pass to enter the Castle. The Tower, which faces East is called torre della Camera d'Oro because there is located the eponymous room. The Interior has frescoes mainly naturalistic themes, fantastic and grotesque. The names of the halls echo the main theme of the fresco. The most important room is the gold room.

  • Nice views and old paintings on walls in a great Castell. I did with a tour but was not a great adventure. Just go by your self of get a transportation. 
  • Beautiful facility overlooking the surrounding hills around Parma where you can see beautiful murals on the ground floor and prowling among the walkways and towers that characterize this place. Especially nice the Golden room. Only minus is the absence of original interiors.

  • Beautiful big castle. Fantastic views over the fields. Many well preserved paintings on all walls and ceilings. Not much info for English speakers. Fair price admission fee - 3 eur for adults and 1 for the kids. A quick tour - half an hour - Ended the tour with delicious lunch at the Michelin recommended taverna just out side.
  • I just love the place!!!
  • Old Historic Place
  • A walk in Borgetto at the foot of a castle can be visited too. What is there more beautiful in spring or autumn Sunday? The ability to find small boutiques selling fine wine, a delicious restaurant and modern, stunning views of the landscape cicrostate and a castle with medieval features. To stay there!

  • Beautiful well maintained and renovated, high-impact the frescoed halls and views from the terraces. Turns freely and descriptive signs guide you to visit. Only concern modern countertops made in the Chapel and in the great Hall on the first floor!?!?!? Anyway I highly recommend! Price ticket 4 euro and very clean bathrooms!!
