The cuisine of Figueres combines the most genuine gastronomic tradition of the Alt Empordà, from our grandmothers’ meat platillos to the fish dishes of the Costa Brava. This is a cuisine intimately linked to the quality of its raw materials originating from the sea, the hills and the market gardens. One of its basic ingredients is our extra virgin olive oil with its Protected Denomination of Origin, of excellent flavour and quality, which is produced in the traditional craft manner in the numerous olive presses of the region. Finally, the perfect pairing for accompanying our cooking is supplied by the wines of the D.O. Empordà, presenting a wide range of notes of colour and taste.
