  • 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.
