Agriturismo Valata Minusa

 
 
 

History

Agriturismo Valata Minusa in Modica is an ancient turrito site, located in the eart of the Byzantine Ibleo upland. Originally it was a watchtower, with the typical features of the Arab-Aragonese style. In the late Middle Ages, up to the eighteenth century, it was a reference point for farmers as a processing factory for olives that transform them in well-qualified and strong oil, with specificity in taste. Even today, there is an ancient olive oil mill, witnessing the intense oil activity that characterized this property, which for generations belonged to the Galfo family.

Our structure


The fabulous structure in which our resort has been built has been uninhabited for over fifty years. Subsequently, after wisdom and careful restoration works, and thanks to the tenacity and commitment of Francesco Frasca Polara, nephew and son of the owners of Agriturismo Valata Minusa, it has finally seen a shine of a past rich in family history and authentic feelings.
