Discover how cinnamon, the ‘King of Spices’, is grown, harvested and turned into those aromatic little sticks we love to use to flavour mulled wine at Christmas.

Villa Mayurana, a forty-five-minute drive from Galle on the south coast, is an exquisite farm and boutique hotel where you can see mature cinnamon trees growing in the most beautiful surroundings imaginable. After a stroll around the plantations, you’ll be shown around the small factory where workers make the sticks of rolled spice – a wonderfully fragrant experience. Cinnamon-inspired four-course meals in the estate garden, on a grassy terrace overlooking the valley, may also be arranged.
