The Didactic "Vegetable Garden"



Day by day


The Organic Farm ‘A Lanterna is in Monasterace and stretches over 67 hectares in the heart of Magna Grecia, inside the Ancient Kaulon Archaelogical Park, near the Punta Stilo Lighthouse, built in 1891 and still in use today. The farm produces olive oil, wine and organic citrus fruits. It offers accomodation and restaurant service at the Locanda Cocintum.
