The red prawn from Blanes (Aristeus antennatus) is prevalent in the waters of the western Mediterranean and is caught by bottom trawling. It’s a highly prized product in the county, with seven fishing boats in Blanes Port devoted exclusively to this catch.
The county boasts a large number of patisseries and bakeries that make their own cakes and pastries. This is a relatively recent tradition but there are already many establishments in La Selva that have their own special recipes, mostly for nut-based biscuits.
The villages of La Selva boast a whole range of different cakes, biscuits and pastries handed down from generation to generation of bakers who have over the centuries created a culinary heritage preserved with pride by the local people, and which we invite you to discover and savour.
