Marzipan Museum and Cooking class

Gourmet Experience
Visit Marzipan, the first Almond Museum in Sicily, housing a permanent collection of over 200 varieties of the precious fruit.
The museum hosts a collection of Sicilian almonds, which is a great resource for the study of almonds and, in particular, the Sicilian varieties.
At the Marzipan Museum your  will learn about the history of almonds and their properties. It hosts antique tools used in the various stages of production, from the harvest to the culinary uses.
Sicily is the island of the almonds.
The Phoenicians brought them here many centuries ago and the Sicilians transformed this great fruit into unique cookies, so there is no better place in the world where to taste, enjoy and learn about almonds. 

The Museum is located close to the archaeological area of the Valley of the Temples, in Favara, a town well-known for the traditional Easter lamb cake made from almond paste. The museum is in a beautiful building that was once an almond factory.
