Tapas route


Tapas are a very characteristic part of Spanish eating and vary from region to region. Some say it was a particular King who insisted that a small piece of food (olives, cheese, cured ham) be placed over the top of a glass of wine, “covering” (in Spanish, tapando – hence the origin of the word) the drink.

You will receive 5 tickets that can be expended at any participating bar of the TAPAS TOUR DH15. Each ticket grants you a drink with a tapa.

Estimated time: 21:30

(This is optional at extra cost).
