Cherish the past

The agriturismo Leone has been involved for years, in partnership with the European Union and the Region of Sicily, in an extensive restoration project of the traditional Sicilian typical tree, and plants from the local landscape.

Like  real guardians of the past, the Agriturismo Leone preserve and reproduce the germplasm of a variety of Sicilian fruits  such as pear, cherry, apple, fig, pomegranate, prickly pear and plum.

A vast project that combines research and tradition, science and education, combining the opportunity to visit our Mediterranean garden designed as an organic garden.

Guests have the opportunity to gather  fruits and vegetables in season. Some explanatory placards indicate the varieties present, and wish that the new generations  understands  the need for protection of biodiversity.
