The Cantabrian region of the eastern coast is the home of Comillas, a perfect place to enjoy a good mariscada (seafood). The fish recipes and the seafood will be seen in the menus of any bar and restaurant in this town. You can also eat some pinchos and enjoy the local specialties. Are you coming to Comillas with us?

You will always find great fish in Comillas, an ancient sailor village. Due to its rich artistic heritage and the amazing beaches of the village and its surroundings, Comilla has become a touristic center that also offers a great gastronomy experience. The sorropotún is a typical dish from Comillas and it is eaten during the Summer. Its name comes from the neighbor village of San Vicente de la Barquera, where they decided to make their own version of the traditional bonito marmita, a maritime dish made with bonito, potato, pepper, onion and tomato.

Also typical from here: the sea urchin (raw or with cheese), the rabas de rejo (octopus), the calamari, the hake, monkfish, sea bass, mackerel and the red sea scorpion fish (they prepare a delicious pudding with it), apart from the grilled sardines and the anchovies (fried or coated). Don’t forget about the Cantabrian seafood: lobster and crab. Remember that Comillas is close to the Natural Park of Oyambre, where you will find many beautiful beaches and cliffs.
