Description

BRONTE, NEARBY CATANIA

The setting for this olive oil experience is Bronte in the province of Catania.

CATANIA

Catania is a city that dates back to 729 BC and was founded by the Calcidesi of nearby Naxos.
Its thousand years of history is characterized by various rulers. It is a city as strong as a phoenix. Destroyed by earthquakes, eruptions and invasions, it was rebuilt every time and came out even more beautiful.

The Etna volcano, the clear sea and the architectural beauties of the UNESCO World Heritage are just some of the reasons that make a visit to this city mandatory.

BRONTE

Bronte is a fabulous city. You shouldn’t leave without tasting its pistachios. The special aroma characterizes many dishes of the local gastronomy.

Bronte is indeed world famous for the production of pistachios, also known as green gold from Sicily.

ANYWAYS.EXPERIENCE: THE ACTIVITIES OF THE OIL MILL

oil mill in Bronte CataniaThis experience is a tribute to the extra virgin olive oil.
Oil plays a fundamental role in the Mediterranean diet: it protects the stomach, liver and arteries, promotes children’s growth and improves the signs of aging.

Is that all? Of course not!

Oil counteracts the oxidative stress that causes aging and diseases, has an anti-inflammatory effect and also prevents cardiovascular diseases.

The tour “Oil Mill in Bronte, Catania” is dedicated to learning. You will see the techniques and activities related to oil collection, processing and production that allow such an important food for our health to be brought to the table of millions of people.

The experience takes place in an old oil mill from 1958 on the west side of the Etna volcano.

You’re in an area renowned for its leading position in Sicilian artisanal oil production. The Romano family accompanies you on a journey through the various production phases: collecting, defoliation, washing, pressing, kneading, separating, clarifying and storing.

You will enjoy a tasting of olive oil and pistachio products. A combination of flavours that shouldn’t be missed when in Bronte.

If you are in Sicily, do not miss this opportunity!
