It is told that King Alfonso X, el Sabio or "the Wise One," made sure that Castilian taverns serve wine accompanied by something to eat, so that the wine would not go straight to the clients' heads.
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.
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 my company you will visit 3 to 4 of the most interesting Tapas bars. I 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.
Airfare is not included in the tour price.
