Best Answer

Parietal pericardium doesn't actually touch the heart. If you imagine the pericardium is like a balloon filled with water, which cradles the heart, the surface or membrane touching it is called the 'visceral pericardium'. whilst the membrane that isn't touching it is called the 'parietal pericardium'. The parietal pericardium and visceral pericardium are continuous with each other meaning there is no distinct point that tells you where one starts and the other ends
