Species of Morella
SMELL, COLOR, FLAVOUR AND SOUNDS
In winter, Morella smells of wood, oak and pine, but we can also smell the stews slowly burning in the fireplace and the bakeries and pastries. In spring, the city smells of rosemary, thyme and basil. The colours of the sky and earth seem also to have a smell. During the summer, the earth smells of lavender. In autumn, the season of the truffle begins, so you can smell the intense odour of the mushrooms. There are also colours, which change the palette of the natural landscape.
There are many species in Morella who are part of the memories that the visitor keeps of the city. The cecina freshly cut, or ham, cheese, meatballs, curd, flaó, milk caps, honey, meats, pennyroyal tea or mountain tea.
