Where is the visceral pericardium located?

Answer 1

In the outermost layer of the wall of the heart.

The wall of the heart has three tunics (layers). They are endocardium or the inner layer, myocardium or middle layer and pericardium or outer layer.

The pericardium has also three layers : the fibrous layer, the parietal layer (or serous layer) and the visceral layer.

The fibrous layer and the parietal layer of pericardium forms the paricardial sac and encloses the heart. The visceral pericardium or epicardium forms the outer layer of wall of the heart.

Between parietal and visceral pericardium, there is a fluid filled space called pericardial cavity.
