Modica, Sicily

The town of Modica is a Baroque gem with stunning architecture and award winning chocolate which is where we encounter Antica Dolceria Bonajuto, the oldest chocolate factory in Sicily with more than 150 years of activity. We received a historical introduction of cocoa - rich in flavonoids, vitamins and active ingredients which have a positive effect on our health - and a tasting of typical sweets.
