Orange Marmelade and Historic Sicilian Garden

Cooking Experience
Many artists have sought to capture the beauty and splendour of this historic garden, but there nothing can compare to seeing the combination of colours and smells of the San Giuliano Village of Villasmundo in person.

The Program is:

Pick up and visit at the San Giuliano Garden, 120 acres near the village of Villasmundo, between Catania and Syracuse.

This historic Garden contain much of the history of an ancient local noble family, and indications of a Sicilian territory that still shows signs of ancient civilizations, such as a bronze age necropolis and remains from the Greek era.
The garden is next to a late 15th century fortified farmhouse, and has been built on the area that used to be occupied by the immense farmyard where the wheat was thrashed, and the olives for oil where grapes and olives were collected before the conversion to exclusive citrus-fruit production.

The four compositions, that constitute a fruit garden and use the so called “saie”, small traditional irrigation canals of Arab origin, include an Arab garden with water basins and water lilies; a tropical garden with palms and large cacti and finally an herb garden that is covered with a vaporous vegetation of helichrysum, lavender, thyme, sage, rock-rose, myrtle, and other plants that give off perfume.

Guided tour of the Garden and Marmelade Tasting with  Rachel Lamb or Dr. Antonio Mandolfo.
