Modica is delightful little town nestled in the Hyblaean Mountains in southern Sicily. It is known for producing famous chocolate in the original style of the Aztecs. The tradition started during the influence of the Spanish Aragonians. We decided we had to stroll to the oldest and most traditional chocolatier in the city and stopped for lunch along the way. The myriad of smoky and flavorful free samples that the shop had to offer ended up being a highlight of the trip, but the raw meat wraps that were accidently (and hilariously) consumed by some unwitting members of the group certainly ranked among the culinary lowlights. Pictured here is the impressive Cathedral of San Giorgio, a Baroque cathedral rebuilt in the newer style after the earthquake of 1693.
