Castle di Torrechiara, Parma

Torrechiara Castle

In the Providence of Emilia-Romagna

The Torrechiara Castle stands on the hills of Torrechiara, near Langhirano which is about 18 km from Parma. This is the most spectacular and well-preserved castle in the providence of Parma. It is a wonderful example of architecture and the castles in Italy because it combines elements of the Middle Ages to those of the Italian Renaissance.

From the very beginning, the castle was to serve not only as a defensive structure but also as an isolated home of Count Pier Maria II de ‘Rossi and his mistress, Bianca Pellegrini of Arluno.

It is currently is state-owned and sits and watches over the beautiful providence of Emilia-Romagna. We did not go inside but I understand it is reasonably priced and is quite beautiful inside.
