Anchovy Festival

17/06/2017 – Anchovies are a specialty of the village and were historically preserved under salt for practical reasons. They are still made and kept in glass containers and enjoyed, seasoned with olive oil and accompanied by a glass of local white wine. Each year, Monterosso respects the ancient tradition of it’s village and anchovy fishermen by providing a banquet of anchovies for everyone to sample and enjoy.
Sea permitting, the festival is concluded with a tour by boat to admire the lampare, spotlight boats used for anchovy fishing-this style of fishing is fast becoming a lost art.
