The anchovy trade in L'Escala has a long historical tradition which has led to the Anxova de l’Escala brand name becoming renowned throughout the world. The Greeks and Romans made salted conserves in Empúries, as shown by the excavations performed in the town. The writer and lawyer Francisco Zamora, in his Diario de los viajes hechos por Cataluña (Diary of Journeys in Catalonia) (1757-1812), declares: “In L'Escala there is a lot of fishing and anchovy , the men earn good wages and there are no poor people. There is a salt storehouse and the women take care of the anchovies”. This text provides evidence that L'Escala is one of the towns which has best preserved its salting tradition. It has a worldwide reputation and has maintained its artisanal style of production with completely natural products over the years.
A visit to one of the anchovy factories in L'Escala will provide you with a unique opportunity to see how anchovies are currently prepared in the town.
