Things to do and see
The Parco dei Cento Laghi (Park of the Hundred Lakes), which is part of the Parchi del Ducato (Parks of the Duchy), holds the highest concentration of glacial lakes in Emilia-Romagna. It is very near our location, a few kilometers from the Albergo Ristorante Ghirardini, which is also a branch of the Ente dei Parchi del Ducato.
Since the Park rises from 400 to 1650 meters above sea level it has created an extraordinary variety of environments and a high degree of biodiversity. An environment in which nature and the life of women and men have integrated to the point of becoming the ideal place for some agri-food excellences such as Parmigiano-Reggiano DOP and Prosciutto di Parma DOP.
Born in 1995 as the Crinale Park of Alta Val Parma and Cedra, after the establishment (2001) and expansion (2010) of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine National Park, the Regional Park has reconfigured its territory and changed its own “mission”.
No longer just the protection of the splendid summit environments, rich in nature and almost completely uninhabited, but rather the enhancement of the rural mid-mountain landscape, still well preserved and rich in biodiversity, agriculture, typical products, culture and tourism.
