Parma museums, ancient fortifications, historical residences and mansions, culture and architecture, monuments in the city or in the surrounding area to be discovered, are some of the basic pieces that define the local history.
And it is through these landmarks that you can get to appreciate a land where echoes of a distant time, gastronomy and culture form an indissoluble union, so as to give rise to the nickname of Italian Food Valley.
Interesting paths meander from the Po' river to the Apennines, taking travelers through a tangle of fascinating natural landscapes.
The Castello di Felino is an integral part of this rich and complex county, which was already well known through the Roman domination and of great importance in the Medieval period, as is witnessed by the many fortresses dotted around and that can be visited today with the tour called Castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza.
Also, the Via Francigena crossed this very zone, which is the reason why numerous Romanesque buildings rose here, including the Cathedral and the Baptistery of Parma, which are among the most important examples of that art.
