Eating in Banyoles

Located close to a legendary lake system of a great natural value, this old ecclesiastical manor in the interior of Girona was an important guerrilla center in the 19th Century. If you want to eat in Banyoles, the rice with rabbit is one of the local specialties. Are you coming with us?

Banyoles, a city located on the shore of the biggest lake of Catalonia, is an important touristic attraction that has the gastronomy as one of its main pillars. Regarding the meat, the rabbit is one of the most popular ones of the region. With it, all kinds of recipes and byproducts are made, even embutidos (sausage). Even more, the rice with rabbit is one of the most consumed dishes of the village.

The vegetable farm of Banyoles has many great products. The pumpkin and the garlic (of red skin and strong flavor) are some of them. Its importance is so big that every October the Gastronomic Journeys of the Garlic and the Pumpkin are celebrated. The Mongeta del Ganxet, a type of bean that is common in the region, is the base of many stews and soups that are served with different meats and legumes. Regarding the desserts, there are many specialties such as the Tortada de Almendras, the Rocs de l’Estany (bonbons originally made for the Barcelona Olympics in 1992) and the Cansaldes, sweets covered with lime and meringue. If you love fruit, don’t miss the delicious Apple of Girona, a product with I.G.P..
