  • We came here to see "the Maag" Montalbano's film and got a very impressive place, almost to the sea which has an incredible charm. For more than 100 years has been destroyed and bring us back into the past as from here departed by sea materials that were exported in North africa.

  • Along the coastal road that goes to Cava d'aliga you reach the furnace. The legendary Mannara most famous Commissioner. Structure of industrial archaeology really beautiful. Shame to leave her in a State of disrepair. Overlooking the sea and the location is awesome.

  • The complex is located in the municipality of Scicli at la contrada Pisciotto and near the seaside village of Sampieri overlooking the sea. The furnace is a monument of industrial architecture. It was built between 1909 and 1912 by the ing. Ignatius Eastley and desire of Baron William pen. The complex stands on a high cliff located between two beaches, one of Sampieri and Ciarciolo of Porto Salvo (today Marina di Modica). A must visit it was built between 1909 and 1912 by the ing. Ignatius Eastley and desire of Baron William pen. It should be noted that for some years it was renamed from Montalbano's hit television series "The Mànnara". The plant, located in the vast property of the pen, that was interested in a strong diversification of traditional capitalist industrial and agricultural landowner to exclusively from income, soon became an initiative at the forefront of the times, both from an architectural point of view that entrepreneurship. that the complex was built on a high cliff located between two beaches of Sampieri and Harbor Ciarciolo Sal

  • interesting historical site (old brick factory) that you can walk around (but not go into) - difficult to access though
  • Impressive building but not accessible
  • The furnace is still gorgeous despite being abandoned to itself which is unfortunate. Should value it while maintaining the original charm. Very nice also the beach below. The beach is free or equipped by choice.

  • It is definitely a place worth a visit, nearby there are rocks to take on alone. Greatly extends the beach nearby;)
