The Funniest Town

'Astronautas', directed by Santi Amodeo

Berantevilla and Novales

 

A great sense of humor is the common characteristic of the 22 towns that are battling it out to become "The Funniest Town in Spain". This week pits Novales (Cantabria) against Berentevilla (Álava). Novales is also known as the "Murcia of the North", given that, since it is situated in a valley surrounded by mountains, it has a micro-climate that enables the town to grow citrus trees. In Berantevilla there is a tradition in which members of the town go around people's houses greeting them in the form of a small human pyramid, in the style of the typical "castellers catalanes" or Catalan human pyramids."

'Un país para comérselo': Majorca, here's to your red sunsets

A delectable country

 

Today's journey takes us around the island of Majorca. We are shown a Majorca which is striving to find its own image through the recovery of some of its products, some of which are quite simple - like bread. Tomeu uses his ancient oven and a restored variety of wheat to prepare a brown loaf which is reminiscent of the ancient, traditional breads which have been baked on the island since time immemorial. And if we are talking Mediterranean and bread, we inevitably start to think about real, authentic tomatoes.
