The restaurant and the workshop of the Majore’s, where « the pork is glorified » not on a industrial level, but following a serious gastronomic tradition that dates back to 1896, are in Martiri Ungheresi street. One of the characteristic streets that cross the centre of Chiaramonte Gulfi, perched on the east side of the Monti Iblei. The sensation of balance and good taste, transmitted by the baroque reconstruction, after the earthquake of 1693, is perceived when entering Piazza del Duomo. A conversation Piazza, a lounge in the sun. Instead, all the imaginable splendour of marble, Stucchi, drapery, silver objects and glass are enclosed in the Church of Santa Maria La Nova, like all the other churches in town. On the opposite side of the beautiful piazza, at number 4 in via Marconi, Casa Majore has opened. The restaurant, the workshop and the guesthouse, are all just a short walk from one another. Casa Majore, converted from the interior of a 19th century building, reconnecting the family history, to the cuisine with rooms on top of the restaurant.
In the 40s and 50s of the last century, in via Martiri Ungheresi, the Majore’s hosted travellers, people such as the magistrate, the elementary school headmaster, merchants and state officials, passing by the seven rooms of the Hotel Stella. The spirit of the old hotel has transferred to via Marconi, with six new apartments: one studio apartment, four two-bedroom apartments and one three-bedroom apartment. All the apartments are independent and have a small kitchen area with an induction cooker, a fridge, microwave and espresso coffee machine. Breakfast is provided in the apartment, but for lunch and dinner it is possible to go to the restaurant Majore or order room service from the menu, as customary for the house. Every apartment has the name of a fruit grown in the Iblean area: Limone (lemon), Arancio (orange), Ulivo (olive), Mandorlo (almond), Carrubo (carob) and Melograno (pomegranate).
