In this tour, you will enjoy the chance to visit the establishments of the two producing families and taste their secret, century old recipes. You will be taken to a kitron tree garden, where the youngest members of the family you tell you all about the tree’s characteristics and other uses. You will be able to marvel at its huge fruits and understand why they also use it in perfumery.
