What does Catalonia taste like?

You always let your palate guide you on your getaways. It’s very important for you to learn about the culinary tradition of the places you visit and about their raw materials, the main feature of the landscape which comprises a way of life. Do you know what Catalonia tastes like?

You’re about to discover a varied culture where food and wine feature prominently. You’ll walk through a land full of contrasts, with vineyards by the sea like in the Costa Daurada, other activities at 1,000 metres of altitude in the Catalan Pyrenees  and even vineyards protected by a holy mountain, Montserrat. These landscapes all give the wine a very special flavour.

To complete the menu, enjoy Mediterranean cuisine by savouring the most traditional dishes crafted with local ingredients. You’re used to a variety of cuisines, because you live in a country with a diverse range of them with multiple cultural origins.

So, talking about Catalan cuisine means talking about a variety of tastes, dishes and traditions. You can sample rice dishes, fish, cannelloni or our famous bread with tomato. Don’t miss the markets and culinary fairs around the land, which will give you the opportunity to sample the local dishes.
