Puigcerdà pears

Pears are a sweet fruit with a long history in Puigcerdà - as early as the Middle Ages they were one of the town's quality products. With production having been on the decline for many years, almost entirely limited to self-supply, it is once again rising. The sudden thermal variations in the area enhance the taste quality of these pears, particularly the late harvest varieties.
