In Vilafranca, before Christmas, we will find La Fira del Gall. It is a traditional poultry market that is celebrated in Vilafranca del Penedès since the Middle Ages. An excellent occasion to buy and taste the renowned “Gall del Penedès”, an autochthonous variety of poultry, which is highly appreciated for its visibility and its flesh, and it is the real protagonist of the fair. On December 21 and 22, they are the dates chosen for the fair in 2019. Gastronomy and wines are also an essential part of the “Fira del Gall”, a large sample of poultry cuisine that features from the most traditional recipes to the newest, accompanied by wines from the Penedès Denomination of Origin. A whole series of festive events make up the program of the Fira del Gall, which is held on the weekend before Christmas.
