The oldest anchovy factory in L'Escala offers tastings accompanied by wines from the Empordà region

Recommending just one of the anchovy factories in L'Escala is quite a commitment. There are four in the town and they all have international renown. In the end, we've gone with the oldest: Fill de J. Callol i Serrats. 

Operating since 1847, it's now the sixth generation of the family that dedicates itself to the thousand-year-old art of salting the fish. On their website you can buy anchovies, 'seitons' (anchovies in vinegar), 'bonítol' tuna and stuffed olives, but the best way to discover the famous original  product is by calling the factory and arranging for a visit and tasting. They'll explain the salting process and you'll finish by eating anchovies accompanied by local wines. A good plan, we think you'll agree.
