According to a well-known tradition, the fruit of Martorana was born because the nuns of the monastery of Martorana, in the historic center of Palermo, to replace the fruits collected from their garden, created new ones with almond flour and sugar, to embellish the monastery for the visit of the pope of the time.

Its history then joined the Sicilian tradition and every year, in the week of the commemoration of the dead, in the houses where traditional sweets are still prepared, you can smell the unmistakable smell of homemade Martorana.
