While for some it represents a way to burn calories and sweat to exhaustion, others associate walking with the pleasure of breathing deeply and capturing every fragment of the suburban landscape. To these last the "Walkway of waters" is highly recommended, a relaxing walk without challenging climbs and descents, which offers a surprise ending for lovers of crossroads stories. Following the cycle track that starts from the station, you enter the flat universe of the fields adjacent to the watercourse Ghiara until the location (area) of Ponteghiara.
Reassured by the colors of a bucolic embrace that promises further mutations, You can then decide not to go back immediately along the railway but, rather, to continue among the huts and completely change the programs, going into the Stirone Park even up to Fidenza. From here, after following a sunny path, it is also possible to choose to regain Salsomaggiore by train.
Modern Architecture - Railway Station
The railway station clad in pink and white travertine was an expression of artistic and urban movements typical of the 20th century. Designed by the engineer Cervi, who took his inspiration from Milan’s central station, the building was inaugurated in 1937.
Stirone and Piacenzano Park
Apart from being an area of great naturalistic interest the park has a particular paleontological importance.
Along the Via Francigena, the beautiful Cathedral of Fidenza, dedicated to St. Donnino, dates back to the 12th century and is a splendid example of Romanesque Emilia-Lombardo.
