Castle

Interesting
This fortress, built on a hilltop 18km to the south of Parma, is powerfully fortified by triple ramparts, massive corner towers, a keep and curtain walls. The living quarters reveal some remarkable 16C frescoes and the south-east tower is home to the aptly named Camera d'Oro (gold chamber), which was beautifully decorated by Benedetto Bembo between 1460 and 1463.
