A fortress immersed in the green hills of Parma, the ancient home of noble families and refuge of heroic leaders. A place capable of telling stories and revealing secrets: welcome to Castello di Felino.
Court banquets, royal dances and infinite joys. An extraordinary atmosphere awaits you today to experience a timeless fairytale.
The ancient manor stands on the hills of Felino, revealing all its beauty from above. At sunset, between the end of the day and the beginning of the evening, the Castle is tinged with magic: illuminated by the vibrant light of the torches, under a starry sky and the romantic moon, it proudly displays its majesty and prepares to welcome guests for a new party. Castello di Felino is a unique place that will make visitors discover the charm and history of past times. Inside the castle there is the Felino salami museum.
Castello di Felino has 1130 years of history to be discovered.
Since 890 the Castle still carries all its primordial charm, on a journey through time full of adventures.
Standing sheer from a steep hill, it appears as if suddenly, surrounded by majestic bastions and embraced by a deep moat. Sometimes it happens to come across a mysterious ghost: it is said that he appears at the stroke of midnight, in the guise of Ottobono Terzi who, in 1400, fought his battle for the conquest of the manor against the Rossi family, feudal lords ruling the Castle .
Today it is much more than a fortress to be conquered: it is a restaurant, historic residence, Congress Center and hosts events and weddings.
The Castle Suites have Renaissance elegance, the warm tones of love and an intimate and welcoming atmosphere. You can treat yourself to a romantic getaway and stay in one of the noble Suites, wake up in the morning and admire an exceptional panorama, while enjoying your breakfast in the court of honor.
Ducal Suite: among all it is the most romantic of the Castle: a real love nest in the Renaissance style.
Keep of the Count: not a common Suite: two high-class floors, cared for in every detail to experience a night like a princess and a prince.
Royal Tower: the Suite is located in the former watchtower and with its panoramic windows offers a wonderful view.
Felino Salami Museum
The Felino Salami Museum is located in the heart of the Castle, inside the historic cellars. Here you can discover the story of the prince of cured meats and appreciate his goodness.
