This is L’Ampolla, a small fishing village about 40 miles south-west of Barcelona, on the mediterranean coast, just above the river Ebro delta.

pillbox

L’Ampolla was of strategic importance in the Spanish civil war; this is a pillbox from that era.

As always the dogs…los perros…attracted much interest.

We stopped for lunch in a backstreet cafe. What is Peixet de Bou? Torradas? Only one way to find out.

Torradas

The red paste was described enigmatically as “Meat and other species” Not much help. But very tasty. The squiggly things were anchovies. Not eels as we thought initially (the cafe is renowned, we had been told, for its eels on toast).
