The Tuna Route - an unforgettable gastronomic experience 

Tuna fishing in Conil has a long history dating back to the time of the Phoenicians, more than 3,000 years ago. The traditional fishing method, called La Almadraba, is still used today: The fish, weighing up to 500 kg, are lost in an increasingly narrow maze of nets, surrounded by the fishermen and then harpooned.

A bloody spectacle that lasts about 4 weeks each year, from the end of April to the end of May.

During this time, the gastronomic event "Almadraba Tuna Route" is also celebrated: Conil's restaurants serve the best tuna specialties ( /

Also not to be missed is the Cultural and Interpretation Center of La Chanca. Built on the former site of the 16th century tuna factory, La Chanca documents what is probably the most important piece of this town's cultural history.
