As well as being a hub for new technologies and innovative scientifice research, Catalonia continues to have an active agricultural sector and this event created in 2016 is a great opportunity to discover local food producers.

Benvinguts a Pagès (which can be translated as 'Welcome to the Farm') is a weekend that sees farms throughout Catalonia open their gates to show their fields,equipment, animals, and products including honey, cheese, olives, fruit and vegetables, all free of charge. You can also meet fishermen and go on board their boat, and most regions offer a range of complementary activities related to the land, produce and nature. What's more, at participating restaurants you can enjoy Benvinguts a Pagès set menus, giving you the chance to sample fresh, seasonal local produce. And if you really want to make a weekend of it, accommodation in hotels, country houses and hostels is offered at special rates.

In Barcelona you will find an offer of "Benvinguts a pagès" at the 7 Portes restaurant and at the Confraria de Pescadors in Barcelona.
