Close to the shore of the Noguera Ribagorzana river, where the valley of Barravés and the valleys of Boí, Castanesa and Viu meet, an old bridge is located. It goes from the high mountains to a small village. Eating in Pont de Suert will allow you to try the typical gastronomy from the mountain regions of Catalonia.

El Pont de Suert is the capital of the Pyrenees region of the Alta (High) Ribagorza. the gastronomy here reflects the culinary tradition from the high mountain areas where the economy of the shepherding and the traditional activities keep having a big cultural importance. The cow and lamb meats are the most common, whether they are cooked as calf sirloin, grilled chops or roasted lamb. The pork is the source of numerous embutidos (sausage) that come from his slaughtering. Along the production of embutidos in Pont de Suert, the most famous one is the girella, made with lamb meat and similar to the chiretas from Aragón. Every year, during the month of October, the Fair of la Girella takes place, honoring this food. Another traditional dish when eating in Pont de Suert is the coca with tomato. It is a similar coca to the recapte one, but covered with a tomato sauté, pepper, garlic, oil and parsley. In the surroundings different types of mushrooms and wild fruits are collected. Our favorite one is the raspberry, used to make a marmalade that has become the culinary identity of the village.
