Montechiarugolo - Unione Pedemontana Parmense

English version | Montechiarugolo - Unione Pedemontana Parmense


The village of Montechiarugolo still maintains its medieval layout, with its characteristic circle of houses surrounding the Castle, one of the best preserved in the province of Parma.
With a typically late-medieval structure (15th century), thick walls, square-shaped bastions and a trapezoidal layout, inside it offers insight into the delicate Renaissance world of large halls adorned with cycles of prestigious frescos, an enchanting frescoed loggia and three internal courtyards offering a green oasis among the austere walls of the castle.
Montechiarugolo is a classic example of a polycentric municipality made up of several towns, the most renowned of which - by virtue of its waters - is Monticelli Terme.
Classic spa and thermal treatments are available in its many baths: inhalation, bathing, mud baths, hydromassage, irrigation as well as motor rehabilitation therapies in a brand new and fully equipped centre. In the park, three indoor salso-bromo-iodic water pools satisfy a full range of specific therapeutic and leisure needs. Annexed to the pools, a relaxation centre includes Turkish bath, sauna, gym and solarium facilities. The Comfort Zone Space Terme di Monticelli wellness centre opened in 2002, and provides cutting-edge treatments.
The municipality of Montechiarugolo is part of three tourist circuits: The “Castles of the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza”, the “Circuito dei Castelli Matildici e delle corti reggiane” (“Circuit of the Matildic Castles and Reggio Courts”) and the food and wine trail, “La strada del prosciutto e dei vini dei colli di Parma”.
