Immersed in the green area of the Madonie, there is one of the most characteristic places in the entire territory, representative of ancient art, that of cheese: welcome to marcatu!

Within a very extensive mountain area, the shepherd will show visitors how to milk the animals and, with the milk obtained, he will begin to produce ricotta and spun curd.

An integral part of the experience is that of practice: in fact, visitors will be able to try their hand at milking and making cheese in the traditional outdoor block with a wood-burning fireplace. Afterward, we will have lunch all together inside the pagghiaru, a building made of stone and straw typical of the marked.
