ANCHOVY WOMEN

The women of L’Escala have always been the ones to clean, salt and carefully pack the anchovies into barrels, to fillet and lay them one-by-one into their special tins.

 

This traditional method, created by women born in this town, has been repeated over the years, being passed down from mothers to daughters. It requires great care and the expertise that has preserved this process since the first generation of anchovy women.
