Take an hour long guided walking tour through Baldassare Forestiere's creation.

  • See a hand-built network of underground rooms, courtyards and passageways reminiscent of the ancient catacombs.
  • Unique fruit producing trees, shrubs, and vines growing underground - some over 90 years old!
  • Ancient Roman architecture - arches, vaults and stone-built walls.
  • Underground micro-climates - temperature variations of 10 to 30 degrees!
  • Underground home of Sicilian visionary and self-taught artist/builder Baldassare Forestiere.

There is so much history and you can find that here.
