The Harbor of Arenys is one of the most important on the Catalan coast. It is the most obvious example of the long seafaring history and tradition of the village. Fishing and the supporting industries that grew up in the vicinity of the Harbor are responsible for a significant part of the town’s economic activity. Virtually the entire fishing fleet of the region is concentrated here. The fish auction that takes place every afternoon when the fishing boats return to harbor is a picturesque spectacle that draws many visitors. Fish and seafood from the market in Arenys is prized throughout Catalonia, especially the prawns and squid.
