Not far from Parma, Monticelli is in the south west of the city and it is the largest village belonging to Montechiarugolo.
This is a spa town with a physical therapy centre and pastimes for holidaymakers. The Terme di Monticelli, a peaceful oasis immersed in a centuries-old park occupying twenty-five hectares, offers classic spa experiences including treatments and accommodation, personalised packages and multi-specialised advice, thanks to the professionalism of the medical staff and the most sophisticated equipment.
Monuments and museums: Borrini Spa, the Curch of San Donnino Martire, the Villa Mariotti Micheli and the "Tempietto di San Giulio".
This town is an ideal place from which to visit the Castles in the Province of Parma, the places frequented by Verdi, the Lands of Matilde di Canossa and it is located along the "Strada del Prosciutto e dei Vini dei Colli" (Parma Ham and Wines of the Hills Trail).
Among the castles in the Parma area, the closest is the Castle of Montechiarugolo, about 6 Km from Monticelli, a fortress that dominates the village and is worth a visit for its great charm.
