The emblematic Spanish community of the Mediterranean Diet is located in the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula.
Capital of the province of the same name located in the north-east of Spain, on the Castilian plateau, at an altitude of 1.063 m., The city of Soria is situated at the crossroads of numerous cañadas (paths for the herd transhumance), which have represented in the past the axes for cultural and economic exchanges.
Renowned for some typical local produce such as wine, butter, pork, lamb and polenta, Soria was inscribed amongst the symbolic places of the Mediterranean diet by UNESCO, for having created, protected and transmit a communal cultural heritage. The Spanish city has committed itself to the identification, documentation, and conservation of events, customs, festivals, and artisan practices regarding the Mediterranean diet that led them to achieve the title as an emblematic community.
