Well worth a visit if you like chocolate. You can see behind the counter where they make their own chocolate in the unique Modica style. Samples of all flavours are there to try before you buy, and various other chocolate themed products are available.

Chocolate shop with many different flavors. They make chocolate using the "cold" making process. Really really fine taste! If you visit Modica (protected by unesco), pay a visit to this shop and get yourself unique chocolate bars!!!
