Cookery workshops with local chefs,

Olives and olive oil have been an industry in Banyuls for over 600 years, long before the town became a tourist resort.

A massive frost in 1956 destroyed many of the 30,000 ancient  olive trees, and the industry struggled to survive.

This festival celebrates the continued growth of the olive industry in Banyuls.

Book in at Le Fanal with Michelin starred chef Pascal Borrell (04 68 98 65 88) for a creative, olive oil themed meal.
