The dry fish tradition in Formentera

The ancient tradition of dry fish in Formentera originated as an ingenious solution to conserve fish for longer periods, allowing its shipment to the peninsula and consumption during the winter seasons when fishing was risky.
This practice involved the selection of fish such as stingrays and kites, which were cleaned, salted and left to dry in the sun to preserve them. Beyond its initial function, dried fish became a distinctive ingredient in local cuisine, highlighting the deep connection between the island and the sea and preserving Formentera’s cultural identity over the centuries.

One of the most iconic and photographed fig trees on the island stands majestically at kilometer 9 on the main road, highlighting the cultural and aesthetic importance these tree figures have acquired in the landscape identity of Formentera.
This meticulous care not only preserves the health of the trees, but also creates a unique stamp that has turned these fig trees into an iconic element of the island.
