Also you can enjoy the local specialities, as “Cocido”, “Callos”, “Caracoles” and a amazing world of all type of “tapas”
It’s no coincidence that Galician cuisine can be found throughout Spain, the combination of quality local dishes like Galician-style octopus, washed down with a glass of crisp Albariño wine, is a major crowd pleaser. You have to go there to see how food is in the soul of this wonderful land.
San Sebastian and the Basque Country
San Sebastian is a city that is thoroughly in love with quality cuisine, from the humble little pintxo to three-star Michelin fare. It often tops best food destination lists and is possibly the ultimate foodie destination in Spain.
Granada is famous for its free tapas; buy a drink and you’ll receive a plate of something delicious for free. Don’t miss trying the local cured ham, Jamón de Trevelez, as well as fried fish and migas, a breadcrumb dish topped with a fried egg and local sausages.
The birthplace of paella should be on any foodie’s radar if only to try Spain’s most famous dish in the place it was actually created. Don’t miss a visit to the city’s Mercado Central to pick up some great local ingredients and sample the city’s drink, Agua de Valencia.
From local bodegas serving cheese, ham and wine straight from the barrel to the very best Michelin star restaurants, Barcelona really has it all. Don’t miss its markets, where you can pick up fresh local produce and pull up a stool at a tapas bar stall for some freshly made treats.
