Eating in Alcover

Right under some mountains rich in fossils and only a few kilometers away from the magnificent Costa Dorada, Alcover is a village with an intense history. It has a small ancient center where tourists can visit the famous Museo Municipal. If you want to know what to eat in Alcover, come with us!

The city of Alcover has a typical gastronomy from non-irrigated lands, as it is located in an interior region from Tarragona. This area cultivates vine, olive trees and almond trees. Thanks to this, the village is famous for many products such as the Oil Baix Ebre-Montsiá or the dried fruits, such as the Hazelnuts from Reus. The almonds and hazelnuts are the base (along with other ingredients such as the bread center, olive oil, vinegar, garlic and ñora) of the xantó, a thick sauce that is served with escarole salad and anchovies. The restaurants from the town offer many other specialties to eat in Alcover, such as the snails, Calçots de Valls with I.G.P, cocas with different modalities and all kinds of stews, rice and traditional embutidos (sausage).

Regarding the desserts, the most popular ones are the cubanos de Alcover, a sweet made in one of the local bakeries. Complete this gastronomic experience with one of the wines of the region, such as the wine D.O. Tarragona and the wine D.O. Cataluña.
