Antico Borgo di Tabiano Castello History
An hotel of absolute charm in a village with a castle nestled in the first hills of Parma, the Antico Borgo di Tabiano Castello dates back to the eleventh century, but was built on a previous settlement of the Roman era.
The defensive fortress of the Marquis Pallavicino, one of the most powerful and influential families in the Ghibelline area of the period, has been the center of many historical events and a strategic area for the domination of the nearby salt marshes and control of the Via Franchigena. Tabiano passes several times by hand, is the subject of contests involving the great feudal families - the Pallavicino, but also the Terzi, the Cornazzano, the Visconti and the emperor Federico Barbarossa himself; from the end of the fifteenth century a slow decline began, linked in part also by the change in military strategy that makes defense fortresses less and less important.
The imposing castle is located on a spur of rock overlooking the village and its elaborate defensive system: the watchtower dating back to the thirteenth century, which with its drawbridge represented the main access to the castle, the circular ramparts and the city walls in defense of the village.
From a fortress of defense, Tabiano has now become a very charming hotel and the Borgo is the center of various food and wine and tourism activities.
All the suites and apartments, divided between the manor houses and the watchtower, have been created combining the ancient charm of vintage furniture with modern comforts.
The structure as well as two pools, then offers a spa for lovers of relaxation, housed in a natural cave: sauna, massage, turkish bath, whirlpool and beauty treatments are just some proposals for the well-being of guests.

The "Locanda di Posta" inside the village is in fact the ideal place to delight with traditional local dishes, taste a good wine, discover the culinary traditions and buy the typical products.
