Sweets of monastic origin in Erice

Food & Wine


In Erice, among its cobbled streets, you can discover one of the oldest recipes in Sicily’s famous confectionery tradition. The walls of Erice’s ancient convents, San Carlo and Santa Teresa, where the cloistered nuns would prepare their delicious recipes, have guarded it for centuries.

Here, you can try genovesi and dolci di badia, served with sweet wine, and experience the rediscovery of ancient flavours in the aroma of freshly-baked dolci di badia.
