Last week I had the pleasure of visiting four must-see locations in south-eastern Sicily: Agrigento, La Scala dei Turchi, Modica & Marzamemi. I’m updating as quickly as I can, but it’s probably just easier if you follow me to get all the posts right away!

Apparently once a powerhouse in Grecian times, today Modica is an atmospheric town with ancient medieval buildings that climb the unbelievably steep sides of a deep gorge.

You really have to see it to believe it – it’s like you’re in an episode of Game of Thrones.

Hopefully these photos will give you a good idea though:

Most notably, Modica is particularly famous for its very special chocolate. Usually flavoured with cinnamon, vanilla, orange peel or hot peppers – it’s a legacy of the town’s Spanish overlords who imported cocoa from their South American colonies. The chocolate is particularly special because of its very simple recipe: only cocoa, sugar and flavourings.

Seemed like a good excuse for a chocolate binge – at the time.
