La Alcachofa De Benicarló - The Artichoke Festival of Benicarló

From the 22nd -  the 28th of January

Benicarló is a small sea side town in the north east of Spain and is famous for almost two centuries due to one small vegetable: its Artichoke! Actually this artichoke is so unique in taste and quality that it has been award with the "Designation of Origin" sea. Each year at the end of January, following the Saint Antony celebration, this little town celebrates the Alcachofa de Benicarló - The Artichoke Festival of Benicarló.

The festival features plenty of cooking demonstrations and tasting of traditional and new dishes, exhibitions, conferences and other related artichoke events. Grilled, fried, in omelettes or in stews, in Benicarló the artichoke is the star of the show. In addition to the gastronomic fair, Benicarló holds also a mass artichoke barbecue (torrada), horse-drawn wagon completion, a sailing regatta and much more. 

Local bars and cafés also organinze at affordable prices tapas days (Jornades del Pinxo) when people can sample artichoke based dishes. Benicarló is easy to reach by car, 90 minutes north of Valencia along the AP-7. There's also a train station in the town.
