Description

The Museu de la Pesca, located in the centre of the fishing port of Palamós, depicts the relationship between humans and the sea. It holds a permanent exhibition which enables discovering the local world of fishing. The visitor will become familiar with the species caught in the Mediterranean, where they are caught, the professions and the crafts related to fishing and their evolution over the course of time, how fishing used to be practised and how it is done today, as well as future prospects.

It is also possible to board the vessels which have been donated to the museum. They provide the backdrop for all kinds of educational activities, cultural visits and workshops, or fish cuisine can be discovered by some of the activities organised by the workshop and the gastronomic room on the premises.
