Dominated by its massive castle, a good example of medieval siege architecture, Bardi enjoys today a steady flow of visitors in summer, coming to admire its magnificent view. From its position on a sheer outcrop of red jasper, in fact, the fort looms imperiously over the village and valley below. The castle hosts the Museum of the valley's life and the Museum of paching and traps.
The parish Church of Santa Maria Addolorata houses a juvenile painting of Parmigianino, the Sposalizio mistico of Santa Caterina.
Several walks and excursions are possible in the surroundings of Bardi, along the paths crossing peaceful hamlets or passing past isolated farmhouses in the green.

Weekly market: Thursday.
