A small town located south of Parma, towards the hills. It is famous for the production of the fine Salame Felino PGI.
Felino is an agricultural and industrial center situated in the rolling hills of the Baganza River valley and along the Stada del Prosciutto e dei Vini dei Colli (Parma ham and wines from the hills road).
Places to visit are the 12th century Felino Castle, The Keep (a 14th c. fortification) and the 12th c. Archpriest’s Church.
The Castle is just outside the village on the hills, it hosts one of the Food Museums, the Salame Museum PGI and and it is among the fairytales accomodations of the the circuit of Castles of the Duchy.
In the restaurants and pubs of the area, besides the local specialties, you can also try Salame Felino PFI, paired with fried cake as an appetizer, in recipes invented by chefs or just the simply delicious salame and bread.
