Collecchio is located 10 kms from Parma and it used to be an important stopping place along the Romea road. At the entrance of the village is the monumental portal marking the access to the park of Villa Paveri Fontana, built at the end of the XVII century. Among the monuments and museums: Museo CiviltÓ Contadina in Ozzano Taro; Church of San Prospero (XI-century); Villa Nevicati (XIX-century). The ancient "Colliculum" in medieval times was a territory owed by the bishops of Parma. The parish church of San Prospero built in the 11th century and largely reconstructed in 1200, conserves terracotta and stone decorations in the central apse, and inside, original 11th- and 12th-century capitals with zoomorphic figures.
In the left aisle there is a white marble bas-relief with a Baptism of Christ, the work of a 12th-century Campionese master. The 19th-century Villa Nevicati with its park of secular trees is also worth a visit. Just outside Collecchio to the east, turn left into Conventino road to enter the Carrega woods park,once a hunting reserve of the Farnese and Bourbons, with interesting historical buildings, numerous lakes and important botanical stations, now a Regional Park set up for public visits and excursions.
