Located in one of the most evocative areas, in the foothills of Parma, the Torrechiara Castle dominates the entire Val Parma. Among the best preserved in Italy, it was built by Pier Maria Rossi in the fifteenth century. If you are lucky enough to visit it on a foggy day, you will see a castle suspended in the clouds and, entering the village, the fog will envelop you, taking you back in time, into the mysterious atmosphere of the mediaeval era. In a few minutes from the Castle of Torrechiara you will reach Langhirano, home of the sweet Prosciutto di Parma, where you can visit the Museum and retrace its history, the secrets of the processing, and taste its goodness. On the way from Torrechiara to Langhirano we recommend taking the enchanting road which crosses Casatico, rich in vineyards, to taste the typical wines of this region.
