Eating in Manresa

Manresa is an important medieval town located in the center of Catalonia and intimately linked to Saint Ignacio de Loyola, who wrote his Ejercicios here. Regarding the gastronomy, if you decide to eat in Manresa you will be able to enjoy many local and quality products. 

Manresa is the capital of Bages, a place where the gastronomy is linked to the earth, the agriculture and the ranching, apart from the artisan elaboration of many different products such as cheese, wine and honey. The waters of the popular Acequia enable the existence of many fertile vegetable gardens that produce vegetables, fruits, legumes and cereals.

The most common ranching is the pork and the cow. But we must not forget about the sheep, especially about the type Ripollesa, a local breed that has a delicious meat. With all of these ingredients, the cuisine from Manresa has many classic recipes with some contemporary propositions and innovative touches. A very popular dish is the cod a la Manresana, which is prepared with alioli sauce, apple purée and egg yolk. In Manresa you will find some fabulous wines, like the Pla de Bages and the Catalunya.
