Famous town all over the world thanks to the majestic Chestnut, an authentic natural monument, Sant’Alfio hosts every year hundreds of gourmand visitors. The festival gives the opportunity to all the producers to exhibit and make their products known in a prestigious showcase within the charming old town with its imposing Church, famous for the lava stone façade and Piazza Duomo, from which you can enjoy a splendid view on all the coast.

This area at the slopes of mount Etna is characterized by a Mediterranean climate, with mild, humid winters and long, hot summers. This provides the ideal conditions for growing high-quality cherries. That’s the reason why the Etna Cherry represents one of the products of excellence in Catania, brand PDO (Protected designation of origin): bright red in color, crispy, sweet, with a very compact pulp and a long peduncle; the low acidity gives a very pleasant taste!

Music, show and a colorful floral exhibition (an amazing carpet of petal mosaic) will make this event unique!
