La garoinada

La garoinada

The “garoines”, or sea urchins, were a real obsession for the Catalan artist Salvador Dalí, who ate these sea and beach flavored shellfish accompanied by pink champagne. They were so seductive to him that they even had a place in more than one canvas of the painter. As a tribute to these sea balls covered with thorns, whose red meat the fishermen formerly ate as a dessert or on a slice of bread for tea, the region of Palafrugell organized a gastronomic campaign from January 16 to March 22, 2015, which dates back annually to 1992.

L'Empordà and the Costa Brava

L’Empordà and the Costa Brava

Calella de Palafrugell, Llafranc, Tamariu and Begur, considered a Slow Town, are part of the region of Baix Empordà on the Costa Brava, which was called the best tourist coast in the world in 2012 and is the place where Camping Moby Dick is located.

L’Empordà is still filled with the essence of Catalan culture. Mediterranean forests, modeled by pagesos (local farmers), are where cereals, apples and grape vines are grown and where fine cuisine is combined with a good sip of DO Empordà wine; young wines that capture the essence and aroma of the land, as in the past, as always and that the people of this land like to offer tourists from around the world, as did Mr. Simon, founder of Camping Moby Dick in Calella de Palafrugell.
