Amazing old sundial on the exterior wall facing Piazza Garibaldi, gives the time pretty accurately, tells where it is noon right now, gives the date and the time of sunrise, all from a sundial.

It takes about 15 minutes on foot from Parma station. It is in the famous square in the statue of Garibaldi.

The building takes up one side of the square and on its facade, there are several sundials. This forms the backdrop to Garibaldi's statue and there are several good cafes and restaurants to sit and watch the world go by.

It is an old structure, but was rebuild several times. There is a nice sun-clock on it. Basically it dominates a half of the square, where are always happening something.
