Fish of the Adriatic Sea in Lignano Pineta

With the coming of March, comes back in Lignano the traditional Molluscs Festival (Festa delle Cape). Now in its 28th year, the culinary event takes place in Piazza Marcello D’Olivo, Saturday 3th and Sunday 4th and Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th of March from lunch until dinner.

As every year, fishermen will suggest the fish specialities of the Adriatic Sea, caught and prepared according to the tradition of the city. Protagonists, as always, clams, grilled or breaded sardines, baked sardines with onions, squids and many other specialities, highly appreciated by the hundreds of visitors who throng to the kitchen.

The place is marvellous: on the large square in Lignano Pineta, between the shopping street and the beach.

After having tasted the fish under the big tent, visitors can walk along the street rich in shops and discover the new summer fashions, or have a nice moment on the beach breathing the fresh and pure air.

If there will be good sunny days, sure the festival will draw a lot of people in Lignano Pineta, just to go out and start to enjoy the outdoors.

The Molluscs Festival is not only an event for the meeting of the inhabitants of Lignano after the long winter, but it is also a crowd-pulling event for tourists, who join the happiness of the party and the good quality fish with the beginning of finding accommodation for the summer.

With the warmer days, many people walk in the city and inquiry about accommodations at the agencies in Lignano. Open almost all year, agencies are ready to give information about their apartments in Lignano and to conclude rental agreements. The first who arrive, then, have often the chance to conclude good business, thanks to the special offers suggested by the agencies. In this way, you book in advance, but you have also a very advantageous price, to spend the holiday in an apartment beach-front in Lignano Pineta.

The Molluscs Festival is, so, for the city also a very important moment to introduce itself and do direct promotion, ensuring in this way a good bathing season. But sure it is a festival that grows more and more thanks to the good quality of the fish of the upper Adriatic Sea, cooked according to the most simple traditions.

Then started to lick yours chops, in Lignano Pineta the 28th Molluscs Festival is waiting for you.
