ALLA DILETTA MODICA

Come Nazareth la città di Maria ti nascondi tra dolci colline, nella tua natural bellezza ti contieni, e ritrosa ti circondi di silenzio.

Contea gloriosa fosti ed or mite, nobile nel sentire e nel sembianze fedele ai tuoi avi e ai tuoi santi, pur semplice, pur umile, sei grande.

Secoli di vita, rinserri nel tuo grembo, il pianto dei tuoi figli, sola hai asciugato, tu riservati e forti li hai plasmati, gli hai dato un animo gentile come il tuo.

Nel cuore hai rinchiusa la tua storia e tu la leggi con discreti accenni mentre il mondo si agita e si affanna, tu, modesta ti occulti nel contegno.

Il fascino dei tuoi colli elevi al cielo, come offerta segreta al creatore, Egli, che solo sa gaudii e dolori, con Maria li accoglie come fiori.

O Madre Modica! O Madre delle Grazie! a Voi immolo affetti e sentimenti sull'altare invisibile del mio cuore come primizia di nuova stagione.

The agriturismo "Il Melograno"

Restaurant - Rooms - Typical dishes

Situated in the heart of the countryside of Modica, in an elevated, charming position, the agriturismo "Il Melograno" is a perfect place to relax and experience the tranquillity of nature.

This family-run holiday farm, an old rural house recently refurbished with the walls preserving the typical local stones, offers friendly and quality service in an informal atmosphere.

The comfortable, air-conditioned bedrooms are all en-suite with bath and shower; some of them also include a cooking area.

The rooms, overlooking the valleys of the Ibleo plateau, are surrounded by a large courtyard and a garden where you can directly pick fruit in season: pomegranates, kakis, oranges, figs, prickly pears.

The adjacent, country-style restaurant, serves traditional food, prepared with the natural products grown in the farm. Our guests can enjoy the typical dishes of the local gastronomy, such as "cavatieddi" and "ravioli di ricotta", that is homemade pasta served with tomato sauce and pork meat; pulses soups with slices of homemade bread; the typical "scacce" and "pastizza" cooked in stone ovens; "arancini", an excellent rotisserie product; local cheeses; olives; traditional sweet specialities.

Conveniently situated just a few miles from many tourist destinations, the agriturismo "Il Melograno" is also an ideal touring base for exploring the surrounding area and visiting the baroque towns of Modica, Ragusa Ibla, Scicli and Noto, the archaeological sites of Cava d'Ispica and Camarina and the seaside resorts of Marina di Modica and Sampieri, where you can enjoy the facilities of some bathing establishments that have an agreement with the holiday farm.
