Flat plains and limestone plateaus surrounded by dry-stone walls tells the history and culture of the ancient Akrai, a sacred place that gives the fruit of its land a unique flavor.
Rebuilt in Baroque style after the 1693 earthquake, Palazzolo Acreide is one of the most fascinating villages in Italy, particularly appreciated by visitors for the naturalistic beauty of its surrounding landscape immersed in the Hyblean Mountains, near the Anapo river. The town is rich in cultural ferment and varied peasant gastronomic traditions; its life slides behind a lively present and an important past. In 664 BC. the first Corinthian colony was established here. The Greek theater and the rock-carved “Santoni” reliefs dedicated to the cult of the Magna Mater are still clearly visible today. The city of Palazzolo Acreide is listed as UNESCO World Heritage. To us, it’s home: welcoming, protective, stimulating and surprising, capable of giving us the exceptional fruits from which our oil is obtained.
