Castello di Felino History
Locanda della Moiana is located inside the Castello di Felino and takes its name from the bell, conserved here, dating back to 1652 in honor of Ranuccio il Farnese, duke of Parma and Piacenza. The origins of the Castle are however much older and date back to 890, the year in which the Marquis Luppone had it erected. Since then, important families have succeeded, such as the Pallavicino, the Sforza, the Farnese, the Marquis du Tillot and, finally, the bishops of Parma, who lived there until 1935.
In the footsteps of these noble predecessors and in the unique style of an authentic renaissance court, today you can spend pleasant moments of meeting, enlivened by a cuisine of the highest level that also provides personalized services: for weddings we organize photo shoots, rental of vintage cars, floral arrangements and special menus and, for those who really want to immerse themselves in the part of the castle, even the religious function in the private chapel and the honeymoon in the castle, with accommodation in the sumptuous wedding apartment.
But that's not all: in addition to having large rooms equipped for conferences and meetings, the inner courtyard can accommodate up to four hundred people, for parties and gala dinners. Or, for those who want to relive the atmosphere of a cheerful medieval banquet, theme and costume dinners are organized,
The cuisine proposed in the inn is based on typical local products, simple but also innovative thanks to the imagination of the chef.
Finally, inside the cellars of the castle is housed the Salame di Felino Museum, an ethnographic museum on the theme of the production of Salame di Felino.
