The cuisine from Alcala la Real is closely linked to its traditions and festivals. Examples of this are its rich confectionery and pork-based products. LA SECRETARIA (CHICKEN DISH) and LOS JARRETES (SHANKS) are noteworthy dishes.

In addition, of particular importance is the local production of REGIONAL WINES with Sierra Sur de Jaén PGI and the EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL. Craft BEER AND GOAT’S CHEESES are also produced and CHERRIES are grown.

Various TOURS are available where you can find out how these products are produced in the growing and production space itself.  

The SAMPLING OF ARTISAN CHEESE, which is held each year in June, is one of the culinary events of the year.
