When we talk about this kind of anchovy, we mean that it's prepared in salt. The technique of salar the foods to be able to conserve them a prolonged time, was introduced in our house by the Greek colonies and perfected later by the Roman towns. In L'Escala (a town located in La Costa Brava), anchovies are one of the most popular local products.
"The Penedès D.O. (Denomination of Origin) is the largest production area in Catalonia. It emphasizes the production of white wines, light and aromatic, elaborated with the traditional varieties of xarel·lo, macabeu and parellada. Most of them are used for the production of cava. Recently the Chardonnay and the subirat parent have been incorporated".
If you want to buy native cultural products in Barcelona, (from food to souvenirs) we recommend you visit our main markets, such as La Boquería and Santa Catarina. Of course, you can find souvenirs in the center of the city or with your tourist discounts in the duty-free shops. Since Barcelona is a tourist place, it is also easy to find typical food products in any supermarket.
Also, if you do not mind going out and have time to visit other cities, we recommend that you visit the Vic market.
Remember that, in each port, you have a Guest Information Center where you can ask the staff for any advice related to which brands offers a better product.
