Monte Etna

[1]Where granita was born

Acireale is the birthplace of the Sicilian granita. In fact, this is one of the few places in Sicily where lots of snow and ice was possible during the winter, which were stored in iceboxes dug into the rock then distributed during the summer with carts. The ice was flavoured with sugar and one of the most abundant fruits in this part of Sicily, the lemon. So make the most of a visit to Acireale and taste the authentic flavour of the Sicilian granita
