BRONTE, NEARBY CATANIA
The setting for this olive oil experience is Bronte in the province of 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 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.

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