Through another 20 km of secondary roads, you can reach Salsomaggiore Terme (pic n°5), a renowned spa resort nestled in a green valley among the foothills of the Parma Apennines. Since the beginning of the nineteenth century, when the therapeutic properties of the waters of the area were discovered, Salsomaggiore has been enriched with many elegant and well-equipped spas.
Along your way, you will get to Fidenza, a nice village of Roman origin, known for its beautiful medieval Gothic-style Cathedral (pic n°6). The unfinished façade is flanked by two towers and has rich decorations, including sculptures by Benedetto Antelami. In the crypt is located the tomb of St. Domninus adorned with beautiful bas-reliefs of the fifteenth century attributed to Giovanni Pietro da Rho.
