El Poblet experience but in a barraca
A Sunday, a barraca, an open-air meal where you can feel immersed in the territory, where you can combine tradition with haute cuisine, where you can sail its waters with an aperitif in hand. Toast together over Valencian stews and dishes and talk about how lucky you are to have this landscape so close to you while tasting cured meats seated at a large table or on the jetty.
Why settle for an ordinary dining experience when you can be part of something truly extraordinary? El Poblet’s 10th anniversary celebration promises to be an event that transcends the boundaries of a mere meal. It’s a chance to immerse yourself in the essence of Valencian culture and indulge in a gastronomic adventure that showcases the region’s finest ingredients and traditions.
