the ipogei gardens

Flowers and plants have their roots in the stone

The inhabitants of Favignana have extracted since ancient times an extraordinary stone: the calcarenite rock, commonly known as “tufo”. Its extraction together with the production of “cantuna” (pieces of tufo parallelepiped-shaped) have represented for centuries one of the most ancient and peculiar activity of the island. The disused quarries were transformed by the inhabitants of the island into vegetable gardens that gave life to a natural greenhouse that allows the growth of fruit trees such as fig, almond, pear, orange and the prickly pear. Even a simple stroll along the streets is sufficient to appreciate the calcarenite rocks covered with plants and other flowers.
