The Agritourism Tenuta di Roccadia in Siracusa province, Sicily, is an agricultural farm immersed in green and is situated in a magnificent location with panoramic views of the Gulf of Catania and Mount Etna. The warm climate in winter and breezy in summer allows to cultivate different varieties of citrus fruits, which are used to produce homemade jams and liqueurs that can be appreciated in our farm.
The Roccadia Estate was donated in 1070 by Count Roger de Hauteville to Cistercian monks and they turned it into a monastery. Today the estate preserves a copy of the painting "Madonna di Roccadia" (also called "Madonna of the Pomegranate"), the original painting is kept in the church of Roccadia in the town of Carlentini, Siracusa province.
Over time the estate has undergone renovations and adaptations that have transformed the structure into a charming agritourism that offers its guests twenty standard and comfort rooms, located in different areas of the farm territory.
