Of uncertain origin, although it is generally agreed that they originated in Andalusia, Tapas have become an important part of the gastronomic scene in Spain. Tapa is the Spanish word for lid and it is thought to describe the old custom of serving a slice of ham covering the mouth of a wineglass. In doing so, the wine was protected from the air and the ham or other tidbits made a tasty appetizer.

As it happens with Spanish traditional cooking, Tapas vary between regions reflecting not only differences in ingredients and preparations but also different lifestyles. Even the names used to describe these little dishes may be different and what is known as Tapa in one area can be called racion or pintxo in others.

There is not better way to explore the wide array of flavors of the cuisine of Spain than to participate in a Tapas route. In the company of a local foodie you will visit 3 to 4 of the most interesting Tapas bars. Our expert will help you to select different Tapas, according to the specialties of the region and bar, always accompanied by wine or another drink such as beer, if your prefer so.

But Tapas are not just a casual way of eating but also and above all, a question of having a good time, the opportunity of meeting other people and, at the same time, to indulge yourself with good food and wine. A way of life common to all Spaniards no matter what region of origin.

By participating in one of our Tapas routes you will be able not only to taste either traditional or creative Tapas but also to get immersed in the real life of the city.

1/2 Day (Duration: 02h30 - 3h00 approx.)
