Walking Tour Modica and visit to the chocolate workshop
The Walking Tour in Modica begins with a walk towards the upper town to reach the splendid Cathedral of San Giorgio.
The tour continues with the descent towards the stairway that leads to lower Modica: here it is possible to visit the numerous typical chocolate shops of the city of chocolate.
Chocolate has always been the typical artisan product of the Sicilian city: Modica chocolate has obtained the recognition of Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) from the European Union.
It is truly peculiar the artisanal processing phase of this artisanal delicacy, which is obtained from a particular “cold” processing of the chocolate and excludes the conching phase.
Modica chocolate is obtained from toasted and ground seeds and is heated to make it fluid. The cocoa mass is added and mixed with granulated or cane sugar, and spices such as vanilla, cinnamon, chilli pepper or ginger, or with lemon or orange peel.
A visit to the chocolate laboratory represents a valid opportunity to learn all the good secrets of the master chocolatiers and to taste the famous Modica chocolate and other delicious local specialities.
The Walking Tour in Modica continues along Corso Umberto, the “living room of the city”, surrounded by elegant buildings in different architectural styles.
The tour ends with a visit to Piazza Regina Margherita or the Monument to admire the ruins of the Castello dei Conti.
We’ll be waiting for you!
