Carob trees and their link to the territory

Crossing the provinces of Ragusa and Syracuse, it's easy to come across long and rich stretches of carob groves. In this small Sicilian aerea, the "Altopiano Ibleo", carob trees grow spontaneously, strong and luxuriant offering themselves in all their splendor...

The "Altopiano Ibleo" is one of the geographical areas of the Mediterranean richest in carob trees, covering over 70% of the entire production of carobs. Since ancient times, the carob has been an integral part of the local identity and our culture, has left indelible traces in our history and is a symbol of our bond with the territory.
