The landscape that surrounds the “Strada del Prosciutto di Parma” is characterised by green and deep valleys, gentle hills and fields created by man’s hard work.
The roads at the foot of the Parma hills keep a lot of traditions, and Parma ham has been a precious resource of this area for centuries. Besides renowned prosciutto, here you will have the opportunity to savour other tasty gastronomic delights as well as delicious wines. Amazing cultural gems set in the Parma hills, among vineyards and timeless colours will fascinate you – Torrechiara and Felino castles, the Fortress of Sanvitale, the Boschi di Carrega park, the Cento Laghi park will take you on a journey through the past.
Langhirano is the capital city of Parma ham and home to the annual Festival del Prosciutto, which takes places in the first two weeks of September.
Torrechiara and its castle house the Prosciutto Museum and the Museum of the Risorgimento “Faustino Tanara”.
