  • To look at it against the background of the Parmesan hills, it feels like we have already seen it in the stories that we were told when we were little, full of knights, ladies, fairies and warriors. In fact it is truly a great medieval work that is worth visiting. Impressive seen from afar but more up close and from the inside. Well-kept paintings and frescoes. Beautiful the Golden Room and the wedding room and interesting all the exhibits visible along the tour route. Very affordable and even free entry price for people under 25 and many different categories. It was great for us (over 25 years old) because without knowing it we arrived on days that provide free entry. But even if even with two extra euros apart you could take advantage of a guide as in other castles and reggies, the judgment would be 5 stars with praise

  • The children (20 and 14 years old) were a little skeptical, but after the visit they were thrilled. Each for a different reason, they were happy with the visit. In all rooms the frescoes are well maintained. Also good multimedia animation showing the esrerna structure of the castle in 360 degrees. Also notable are the armor and weapons displayed in the display displays. There was work going on in one of the parts that would osip some of the skulls that I imagine will make the visit even more complete. Good descriptions of the rooms, contained within oguna to be on special exhibitors. Excellent view of the plain and related crops. Go. The ticket price is adequate.

  • 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.
