Bunyols de Vent (Wind Fritters)


Brunyols are a traditional sweet fritter still made today by many Empordà families around Lent and Easter. They are famous for their subtle taste of aniseed and sugar coating. You will also find them in the bakeries and patisseries of Figueres throughout the year. In the city we celebrate the Fira del Brunyol, a festival in honour of Sant Josep.
