Tuna Festival of Zahara de los Atunes, May 2018

Fish lovers travel from far and wide to the Tuna Festival of Zahara de los Atunes to taste the first succulent almadraba tuna – caught by an ancient method dating back to Phoenician times as these Leviathans leave the cold Atlantic for their warmer Mediterranean spawning grounds.

During the festival week there are as many fish fanciers on land as there are tuna in the sea. To crunch numbers, the population of this pretty maritime pueblo of 1,300 residents fills up with another 15,000 hungry souls who devour 65,000 tapas made from 200 tuna weighing around 200 kilos apiece.
