For a delicious Paella with a difference, one of the area’s specialities is Fideua, made with small noodles instead of rice. There is a dark tale regarding the regions shellfish where reportedly Louis Joseph, the Duke of Vendome, whilst fighting in the war of the Spanish Succession ( 1654 – 1712 ) died from a stomach ailment after eating a helping of king prawns.

In 2015 the theme was Pirates. Over 30 troupes participate, each represented by a Queen wearing stunning costumes. The Carnaval starts with a procession led by a huge wooden figure adorned in clothing of that years theme. The days that follow are a festive mix of parades and parties, including a pyjama party and karaoke. The most important event is the Queen’s presentation where each of the troupes show off their Queen’s in all their glory.
