Salt event – Festa de la sal en – l’Escala Costa Brava

11. + 12.09. 2010 Festa de la sal  l’Escala

A few years ago, the Platja de les Bargues in l’Escala was turned into a place that might have fitted very well into a time now long gone by – and has been turned into this place annually ever since. When the fishers’ life in the XVIII century and the transport of salt are retold in living pictures, being at the beach suddenly feels like having walked into the set of a cloak-and-sword film. The entire village is said to have been living solely of fishery and selling their special anchovies.

Anchovis – L’Escala

Until today, the way anchovies are preserved has not changed much and is still considered to be traditionally linked to L’Escala. Anxoves (Catalan) – anchoa (Spanish) – or anchovies are the most typical product of the region around L’Escala and are loved well beyond the borders of said region. Furthermore, they are a delicious souvenir.
