The territory surrounding the Tenuta dei Margi features numerous archaeological sites, whether prehistoric Sicilian, as in the “Grotta Castellucciana di Calaforno” or of the Greco-Roman era for the Roman Villa of Giarratana. The most extraordinary thing, however, is that within the estate itself there is a Roman farm from the Imperial era, the “Officina Mellis Hybleus.” Here, they produced excellent products that were sent directly to Rome, including the famous Ibleo Honey, which was praised by Cicero during his trip to Sicily.
