The Sicilian Granita Festival
The Nivarata is an amazing event which will take place in Acireale, approximatelly from the 22nh till the 29th of May 2020 to enable thousands of visitors to taste the real Sicilian Granita! Take a holiday and rent one of our charming villas to discover this event!
Artisan granita is a very refreshing ice dessert, great to beat the Sicilian summer heat. Not only it is an art for the ones who produce it, but it is also a not to be missed ritual for the ones who experience it.
Thanks to its wide range of flavors, Sicilian granita embodies a unique mixture of cultures which best represent the strength and richness of Sicilian culture. The most classic flavor is almond, followed by coffee, lemon, chocolate, Bronte pistachio, strawberry, peach, mulberry… lots of flavor to indulge all your sweet tooth!
In Sicily, the Granita is served with a hot brioche, called brioscia cu’ tuppu in the Sicilian dialect, and it’s ideal for breakfast but also for lunch, in the afternoon or for dinner… Granita is always a good idea!
The festival represents a good opportunity to discover one of the best culinary Sicilian tradition and to be taken on a food trail through the architecture, history and culture of our island. Find out more information here.
Acireale will welcome you with its spectacular churches and squares, and with all its enchanting baroque monuments.
