How is the King of Cheeses born?

With a visit to a dairy you will be able to see live the stages of the birth of Parmigiano Reggiano, its millennial history and the processing that takes place today as yesterday in our territory.

The route will allow you to follow the most significant moments of processing and visit the maturing warehouses. You can not miss the tasting to discover how the Parmigiano Reggiano is full of flavors and aromas.

Second stage: Torrechiara Castle. Its founder, Pier Maria Rossi owned several fortresses around Parma, was a leader and was well known in various courts of northern Italy. Among the numerous castles it possessed, Torrechiara is the jewel. The Golden Chamber is the most famous and fascinating room in the manor: it tells of the love of Pier Maria and Bianca, his beloved.
