Eating in Pals

Eating in Pals

This small medieval village surrounded by hulls and close to the Costa Brava allows people to get great views of the region of Ampurdan from its viewpoints. The gastronomy of Pals is based on local products; reason why eating here is a synonym of quality.

The city of Pals is famous for its rice. The production of this cereal in the region is documented since the 15th Century, but it was reintroduced at a big scale in the beginning of the 20th Century. Nowadays, it is still one of the main economic engines of the city. The quality of the rice from Pals is well known inside and outside of the municipality. The cultivation of this product is made following the principles of the ecologic compromise, as it is extremely respectful with the landscape. Apart from is, the rice farming is also a touristic attraction. During the months of March and April the Gastronomic Campaign of the Rice from Pals takes place, a moment when it is usual for the local restaurants to cook their own rice a la cazuela.

On the other hand, the gastronomy of Pals is a good example of the cuisine of the Bajo (Low) Ampurdan, where the sea is the source of excellent fish and seafood; the valleys the source of fruit (such as the Apple from Girona, a product with I.G.P.) and vegetables; the mountains are the source of meat, cheese, mushrooms and other wild ingredients. Complete this gastronomic experience with the wine products of the region, such as the D.O. Empordà and the D.O. Cataluña.
