FÊTE DU POINTU
Days / Schedules
From 29/06/2019 to 29/06/2019 : saturday (A 10h00).
ProgrammThe "Pointu" (sharp shape shell) will be honoured for that 7th consecutive edition organized by the Grau d'Agde merchants and supported by the city. This will be the opportunity to taste that sea snail through various recipes and learn from the fishermans the story of that shelll.This sea snail filled a very important function during antiquity to middle-ages. It secretes a mucous that supplied the "tyre purple", very expensive to extrac therefore it was only used by upper, royal and imperial classes around the Mediterranean sea. In Rome this was a symbol of power.
Today the "pointu" has resumed its original culinary function. If Spanish people have always been fond of that shell it was avoided by consumers in France, but for 10 years this sea snail won back its lovers.
