It suits to many different tastes this itinerary. It’s perfect for shopaholic because located nearby the centre of Fidenza is Fidenza Village Outlet shopping , the shopping centre with many boutiques of the most prestigiuos brands at reduced prices.

Visiting Fidenza is recommended in every time of the year. Visitors can still see this town’s Roman origins in the area east of Piazza Garibaldi.
The cathedral in Fidenza is a masterpiece of Romanesque architecture. The job of overseeing its construction and sculptures was entrusted to Benedetto Antelami, a noted architect and sculpture of the time between the end of the 11th and beginning of the 12th centuries.
The most noteworthy part of the building is most definitely its facade, where visitors can admire the bas relief and statues which portray clear messages dedicated to the pilgrims and faithful who visited this church.
Even in early Christian times, mention was made of a small church preserving the mortal remains of St. Domnimus, to whom the present cathedral is dedicated. Because of the veneration for the saint, the church became a vital stopping place in the Middle Ages for pilgrims bound to Rome along the Via Francigena. Fidenza’s cathedral is the best example of a pilgrimage church.
