Eating in Cardona

Eating in Cardona

A village surrounded by a fortress and by salt deposits, Cardona is known for being the home of one of the gems of the Catalan Romanic: the Colegiata de San Vicente. Apart from this, the gastronomy will surprise you with a rich and broad offer of quality flavors.

Cardona is a small village with an incredible patrimony, such as the medieval castle and the old salt deposits. The gastronomy is strongly conditioned by the river Cardener and the existence of a rich vegetable garden which produces ingredients that are used in the whole region of Bages. Legumes and vegetables such as the famous Tomato Rosa del Cardener are the base of a cuisine related to the ancient country side livestyle.

The strong argriculture tradition is present in the typical recipes, apart from other specialties such as the snails, grilled meat and the artisan embutidos (sausage). The seasonal mushrooms are also very present in every kitchen, and one of the most popular ones is the llanera. To drink, nothing better than a cup of wine D.O. Pla de Bages, D.O. Cataluña or the blackberry liquor Capricho del Cardener, produced in the region.
