In Spain, our passion to enjoy a beer or a wine with a tapa, plays an essential role in our way of life and traditions. Nowadays, the tapa is internationally recognized and has been declared Intangible Cultural Heritage.
A bar is not a place where you go exclusively to drink and eat; it is a meeting place for family, workmates and friends and the place where we can meet future friends.
Spain has more bars per one hundred inhabitants than anywhere else, and we head to them for breakfast, for a drink between meals or to have a meal itself, especially in the evening and at night.
While other nationalities choose to spend more time at home, we choose bars to enjoy good conversation and taste quality products, standing at the bar or sitting at a table. The ingredients and food that tapas are made of differ from region to region and are cooked and presented in a wide variety of ways.
This sociocultural tradition can be found all over the country. Spain for Gourmets has designed an excellent Tapas Tour, including 6 different tapas with it’s drinks, where you will share our passion for bars and tapas by visiting both centenary establishments as well as most modern bars.
