A beautiful restored castle, with really very extensive displays of frescoes and murals. Well worth a visit along with the other similar quality castles in this region

...and then, if you want to see it in the real world, visit the Castello di Torrechiara. Let your fantasy think of “the enemies” seen at a distance from the tower, think of life around the castle, the abbey down in the valley...

There is a very steep hill to climb to get to the castle, but there are a few car parking spaces at the top if you are lucky enough to get one. Having arrived on the 15 August public holiday, it was nice to get free entry. We enjoyed wandering around the very well maintained castle. Would have loved a guided tour but unfortunately they dont do English ones. There was some information to read in English which helped us though.

This castle was built as a love nest and combines the Renaissance with the Medieval period. The frescos are all secular, romantic, but never lewd or risque. It only takes the best part of an hour to visit the public rooms, and the views are truly gorgeous. In fact, the whole area around the Parma River and Langhirano is one of the loveliest areas of Italy.

We did not origianlly have this on our list of things to do, but close enough to where we were staying to add to the list. Easy to find just north of Langhirano. We had a bright sunny day for a visit. The rooms inside were well preserved, and gave a great presentation of life from yester-year. Some beautiful murals for viewing. A lot of walking, and l alot of cobblestone and stone pathways to navigate.
