DescriptionBenefit from the deep knowledge of a local guide in Madrid's tapas scene with a walking tour and tasting experience. In a small group of no more than 10 people, find some secret spots with great tapas traditions in the old city. See, smell, and taste the astonishing San Miguel Market with its narrow and old-stone city streets and discover the very Spanish tradition of 'going for tapas'. For more than three hundred years, Spaniards from all localities continue to enjoy this custom. It is claimed that King Alfonso X ordered that in the small restaurants of Castile, no wine be served if not accompanied by food. Another version of history claims the origin of tapas lies in the bars and taverns that began to cover glasses with pieces of bread or slices of ham to prevent flies from entering the drink.
