The fruits of Alcantara
The fruits of Alcantara


The Alcantara valley offers visitors many gastronomic specialties

Along the "water way" there are many food products of high quality and ancient plantation traditions. The old cheese-making tradition offers fresh as well as aged products (pecorino cheese and provole) but also new products combined with the fruits of the territory, such as cheeses with nuts, to taste Alcantara's tradition.
The Moio plain is proud of its rich peach production. The very high quality of their production depends on the traditional picking technique: the fruits are picked only when they are almost ripe, so that peaches can reach their best tastes and fragrances.
The landscape of the valley is characterized by lands mostly cultivated with fruit trees. Each municipality, with its quality agricultural products (from citrus trees to cherries, medlars and nuts), contributes to offer a farming as well as cultural landscape at the same time considering how deeply-rooted it is in the local traditions.
Oil and wines are excellent: just taste a simple homemade bread slice with a bit of oil... its scent will be only one of the many memories left after the visit to the Alcantara Park.
