Itinerary B

[2]The maritime pine

Immersed in nature, the Greek theater of Syracuse welcomes visitors among the fragrances and aromas of the many species of plants that sorround the park.
Among the smells that belong to the earth, especially emerges the Mediterranean pine.
Il pino marittimo This tree, called maritime pine tree, is widespread in Sicily and is distinguished from the tree that produces pine nuts thanks to the smell of its needles.
By pinching the needles in the hands, pine from pine nuts gives off a more delicate and light scent, very similar to that of its small edible seeds, while the maritime one produces a more intense and sour essence.
