The park of Donna Coraly is a precious jewel.
Rare and peculiar plants such as “Buddha’s hand” and “citrus caviar” grow harmoniously near the quince, which is typical of Sicily,
and the more tropical mango and avocado trees, up to jujube, arbutus and pomegranate.
At the center of the park stands an ancient carob tree, a symbol of the Mediterranean and in particular of south-eastern Sicily, evoked by the poet Salvatore Quasimodo in a nostalgic poem about his land, when he says: “I have forgotten the sea, the serious shell blown by Sicilian shepherds, the chants of the carts along the roads where the carob tree trembles in the smoke of the stubble…”.
Next to it, we find the memorial stone in memory of the armistice that confirmed the surrender of the Italians in 1943, evidence of a history that is still alive, of which this estate was the protagonist.
The garden advances, then, among citrus and fruit trees that lead to the hortus conclusus, where vegetables and aromatic plants are cultivated to offer the guests of the resort fresh and organic products.
